Helena Jahangir placed on three-day remand

UNB, Dhaka
A Dhaka court on Friday placed ‘Joyjatra IPTV’ chairman Helena Jahangir on a three-day remand in a case filed under the Digital Security Act (DSA).
The court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury passed the order after investigation officer Sheikh Shahnur Rahman produced her before it, seeking a 5-day remand for interrogating her.
Earlier, the Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) filed the case against her with Gulshan Police Station, ASP Imran Khan, assistant director (media) at the Rab headquarters, told UNB.
Details of the case will be made public soon, he said.
Besides, Imran said, Rab is getting ready to file more cases against Helena who was removed from Awami League sub-committee on women affairs recently.
Rab members held Helena from her Gulshan residence on Thursday night, four days after she was removed from the AL sub-committee.
The elite force members "seized foreign liquor, illegal walkie-talkie sets, casino equipment and deer skins" during a four-hour raid on her home on Thursday, Rab Executive Magistrate Palash Kumar Basu said.
Rab also raided and sealed off Joyjatra IPTV.
Meanwhile, Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said action will be taken soon against unregulated and unauthorized internet protocol televisions (IPTVs) across the country.
Mahmud, also Awami League joint general secretary, said this while replying to a question from reporters at his official residence in Dhaka on Friday afternoon.
“Some IPTVs are often involved in spreading rumours, dishing out false information. It’s also seen that some people have opened offices of television channels and even appointed their district representatives before getting any government approval. All these issues need to be regulated,” said Mahmud.
About Helena, he said Helena Jahangir is chairman of Joyjatra IPTV. “This is not fair for such a person to enter any sub-committee of the party (AL),” he added.
