Acting Editor of Daily Amar Desh newspaper, Mahmudur Rahman, has been handed down 13 days of remand by the CMM court. Police sought 24 days remand on 3 allegations. Remand, although meant to mean questioning, is widely recognised as custodial torture in Bangladesh. In another report, Mahmudur Rahman’s mother sought help from campaigners to protect her son from custodial torture and secure his release.
