He was put on the seven-day remand on Monday after his arrest for interrogation in the graft case against a prayer for a ten-day remand. Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Deputy Director Zahirul Huda, also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, mentioned that there is a necessity to verify the information obtained from Koko. If necessary, he might be remanded again for quizzing in future subject to the development of the investigation.
