On Thursday, a Dhaka court gave investigators four days to interrogate the actor after Banani police’s Inspector Sohel Rana sought a seven-day remand in two cases started by the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB).

The court on Thursday also remanded Pori Moni’s associate Ashraful Islam Dipu, who was held from the actor's flat at the upscale neighbourhood of Banani.
Producer Raz and his associate Sabuj Ali were held in a raid on Raz’s Banani house.
They have been remanded for four days in another case on similar charges. Raz had helped Pori Moni to make a career in the film industry, the RAB said in a media briefing on Friday.
RAB claimed Raz carried out illicit activities in the name of hosting night parties and kept pornographic content on his laptop. He faces charges under the Pornography (Control) Act in another case.
