A court on Tuesday placed former Jubo League leader Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan on three-day remand in a case filed under the Money Laundering Prevention Act.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Ziaur Rahman showed Khaled arrested in the case and placed him on three-day remand after holding virtual hearing following petition filed by Criminal Investigation Department.
Khaled, who is now at Kashimpur High Security Prison, was produced before the court virtually from the jail.
Later, Investigation officer and CID sub-inspector Rashedur Rahman sought seven-day remand, while defence counsels argued to scrap the remand plea.
Inspector (unarmed) Md Ibrahim Hossain of Economic Crime Squad of CID filed the case against Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan with Motijheel Police Station on June 7.

The law enforcement agency seized illegal weapons, yaba and huge cash from his residence.
RAB handed him over to Gulshan Police Station on September 19.
RAB filed three cases, one for possessing illegal arms, one under narcotics control act and one under Money Laundering Prevention Act against Khaled.
