A Dhaka court on Friday placed two accused on different terms of remand afresh in a case lodged over recent escape of two death-row convicts from police custody at a Dhaka court, reports BSS.

Of the two, Idi Amin was placed on six-day remand and Mehedi Hasan Omi was placed on five-day remand in the case.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mosharraf Hossain passed the order as police produced the duo before the court after end of their first round of remand in the case.

Earlier on November 27, Dhaka Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Tofazzal Hossain had placed Idi Amin on four-day remand in the case. He had surrendered before the court on that day and pleaded for bail.

Mehedi Hasan Omi on the other hand, was placed on seven-day remand on November 24 by the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shafi Uddin.

Death-row convicts Abu Siddiq Sohel and Moinul Hasan Shamim, members of banned militant outfit Ansar-al Islam, were whisked away by their associates by beating police and spraying some chemical on their eyes at Dhaka Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court arena on November 20.
