A Dhaka court has placed Monir Hossain, popularly known as Golden Monir, on a 18-day remand in three cases under the Arms Act, the Special Powers Act, and the Narcotics Control Act.

Rejecting a bail plea, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate passed the order on Sunday.

Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Bakar Siddik passed the remand order on the Arms Act and the Special Powers Act for seven days each.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Masudur Rahman granted 4-day remand in drug case under the Narcotics Control Act against Golden Monir.

The investigation officers prayed for 7-days remand separately in these three cases against Golden Monir. 

Earlier on Sunday, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) filed the three cases against Golden Monir, who was arrested from his Dhaka residence on Saturday over possession of illegal firearms, foreign currency, and drugs.
