Jamaat-e-Islami Nayeb-e-Ameer Delwar Hossain Sayedee was remanded Friday again on charge of making an attempt to kill late Prof Humayun Azad in 2004.
Metropolitan Magistrate Dilara Alo Chandana granted two days fresh remand after the investigating officer of the case produced the Jamaat leader before it and sought seven days remand for further interrogation.
Earlier on July 19, Metropolitan Magistrate SK Tofael Hassan placed Sayedee on a three-day remand in the same case filed on charge of making an attempt to kill late Prof Humayun Azad on February 27 of 2004.
It had passed the order after Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Inspector Mostafizur Rahman, also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, produced Sayedee before the court seeking a seven-day remand.
Sayedee was shown arrested in the case on July 11 following an application submitted by the CID.
On February 27, 2004, assailants stabbed prominent writer Humayun Azad brutally with machetes in front of Bangla Academy when he was on his way back to his residence.
