A Dhaka court has granted police two more days to question actor Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed, arrested in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Md Amirul Haider Chodwhury passed the order on Friday afternoon, confirmed Sub-Inspector Shawkat Akbar, general recording officer at the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court.

Nawshaba was produced before the court on Friday by case investigation officer Mohammad Rafiqul Islam after her previous four-day remand ended.

Rafiqul, inspector of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, had sought a 10-day fresh remand for her.

But the court granted two days for further interrogation, while rejecting a bail plea filed by the actor’s lawyer.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) had detained Nawshaba from the capital’s Uttara on August 4 for spreading rumours on Facebook during clashes between students and police and reportedly activists of ruling party affiliate organizations at Jigatola.

She had claimed that the two students were killed and the eyes of another were gouged out during the clashes.

However, her claims were not backed by proof; but this created controversy and spread panic among students and on social media.

Later, she admitted that she did not witness the incidents and had received the information from a friend.

RAB filed the case against her at Uttara west police station on August 5.
