However, police sought 20-day remand in each of the two cases.

Mamunul was produced before the court following the completion of his seven-day remand in a vandalism case filed with Mohammadpur police station in 2020.

On 18 April, a joint team of Tejgaon division police and DMP's Detective Branch arrested Mamunul from Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasah in Mohammadpur.

Mamunul, who has been in the limelight due to some recent controversies, was held with a woman he claims to be his second wife from a resort in Sonargaon on 3 April.

Later, Hefazat leaders claimed that Mamunul went to the resort with his "second wife" where locals confined and harassed him before calling in the police.
