A Dhaka court has rejected a bail petition from BNP lawmaker Harunur Rashid.
The lawmaker was sent to jail after he surrendered before the court and sought bail in a forgery case.
Metropolitan Magistrate Rashed Kabir passed the order after the lawmaker from Chandpur-4 constituency appeared before the court with his lawyer Advocate Golam Mostafa Khan.
A BNP leader from Chandpur, Mohammad Abdul Hannan had filed a case against Mr. Rashid earlier this year on charges of bringing false allegations.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
