Dhaka: The Editor of Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh mouthpiece 'Daily Sangram' was on Saturday placed on three-day remand in a case lodged under the Digital Security Act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mainul Islam passed the order after police produced Editor Abul Asad before the court, seeking five-day remand.

The case was lodged with Hatirjheel Police Station by ward 36 Muktijoddha Commander Afzal Hossain on Friday night.

He was arrested on Saturday, said DMP's Tejgaon division Deputy Police Commissioner Biplob Bijoy Talukder.

Earlier on Friday evening, leaders and activists of Muktijuddho Mancha had vandalised the office of Daily Sangram at city's Mogbazar and locked it over a news published on the newspaper, describing executed war criminal Abdul Quader Molla as a 'martyr'.

Later, Hatirjheel police went to the spot and took editor Abul Asad under custody.
