Eight days remand each for Karim and Tahmid Hasib

A court in Dhaka has granted police eight days remand each for former North South University teacher Hasnat Karim and Canadian university student Tahmid Hasib for questioning them on Gulshan terror attack.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nurunnahar Yasmin on Thursday passed the remand order after police produced them before the court and sought 10-day remand for them.

Traceless for over a month, earlier today police arrested them last night as suspects of Gulshan attack. They were said to be arrested under Section 54.

Gunmen, allegedly of the Islamic State, killed 20 hostages – mostly foreign nationals – and two policemen during a 12-hour-long siege at Holey Artisan, a cafe in Dhaka’s diplomatic zone.

Hasnat Karim, a former teacher of North South University and UK citizen, and Tahmid Hasib, a student of a university in Toronto, were witness to the bloody carnage inside the café.
