A Dinajpur court on Sunday placed prime accused Md Asadul Haque on a seven-day remand in a case filed for attacking Ghoraghat UNO Wahid Khanam.
Moniruzzaman Sarker of Dinajpur Senior Judicial Magistrate Court passed the order after the detective branch (DB) of police produced him before it with a 10-day remand prayer.
Earlier, law enforcers arrested 6 individuals, including Asadul, in connection with the case filed by UNO Wahida's elder brother Farid Hossain with Ghoraghat Police Station.
The detainees are Jahangir Alam, 40, convener of Ghoraghat Upazila unit Jubo League, Asadul Haque, 38, member of the same Upazila unit Jubo League, Masud Rana, 40, president of Singra union unit Jubo League, Nahid Hossain Polash, the night guard at UNO’s official residence, Md Nabirul, and Shantu Kumar Biswas.
During primary interrogation, Asadul Haque confessed to his involvement in the attack carried out for robbing the UNO residence.
According to local sources, the attackers broke into Wahida's house through a window and started attacking Wahida.
Her father Omar Ali was also gravely injured when he tried to stop the attackers and save his daughter.
Wahida and her father were first taken to Rangpur Medical College Hospital. The UNO was later moved to the ICU of Rangpur Community Medical College Hospital.
As her condition deteriorated, the UNO was airlifted to Dhaka by a Bangladesh Air Force helicopter and admitted to the National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital in the city's Agargaon.
