She was denied bail in another case on Wednesday

Helena Jahangir, who recently lost her post in the Awami League, has given confessional statements in two cases filed with Gulshan police station — one under the Wildlife Protection Act and another under the Special Powers Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Dhiman Chandra Mondal recorded the statements of the businessperson-turned-politician on Wednesday.

The investigating officer of the cases requested that the statements be recorded after the accused had voluntarily agreed to make them.

Helena Jahangir was ordered to be sent to jail afterwards.

Meanwhile, the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim on the same day rejected Helena Jahangir’s bail plea in a case filed with Pallabi police station over fraud.

Earlier on Tuesday, Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sufiyan Mohammed Noman granted her bail in a case filed under the Telecommunication Act with the same police station.

It may be recalled that law enforcers arrested Helena Jahangir during a raid at her Gulshan residence on August 3.

In the course of the raid, RAB seized a large quantity of liquor, poker equipment, walkie-talkies, foreign currencies and knives from her home.

The controversial personality is also facing charges in cases filed under the Digital Security Act and the Narcotics Control Act.

Helena Jahangir lost her membership of the Awami League subcommittee on women affairs on July 25 over her involvement with the Awami Chakrijibi League, an organization with no affiliation with the ruling party. 

She was also removed from the position of advisor of the Awami League’s Comilla district unit.
