A Dhaka court denied the bail petitions of Rashtrachinta activist Didarul Bhuiyan and Dhaka Stock Exchange director Minhaz Mannan Emon in a case filed under the Digital Security Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury sent them to jail after the bail hearing.

The court, however, will hear the remand prayer after reopening of the court proceedings.

Earlier, Sub-Inspector of Ramna Police Station Jamshedul Alam -- also the investigation officer of the case -- produced them before the court with a seven--day remand prayer for each.

RAB picked up Didarul from his house in the capital's North Badda on May 5 evening while Minhaz on Wednesday.

Earlier, Rab-3 Assistant Director Abu Bakar Siddique filed a case under the Digital Security Act on Wednesday with the Ramna Police Station naming eleven people, including a cartoonist, two journalists and a writer, for "spreading rumors and carrying out anti-government activities".

Of the other accused, cartoonist Ahmed Kabir Kishore and writer Mushtaq Ahmed landed in jail yesterday after they were produced before a Dhaka court.
