Senior judicial magistrate Soraf Uddin Ahmed passed the order after inspector Shah Alam of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), also investigation officer of the case, produced him before the court seeking a 10-day remand, said Golam Zilani, inspector of Feni court.

A PBI team arrested Maksud, also a member of the governing body of Sonagazi Senior Fazil Madrasa, from a hotel in the capital on Thursday night.

Meanwhile, Maksud was suspended from the party on Friday.

On 6 April, Nusrat was set afire at an examination centre allegedly by people loyal to the principal of her madrasa Siraj Ud Doula after he was arrested and subsequently suspended as she had accused him of sexually harassing her.

Nusrat Jahan lost her battle for life on Wednesday night at Dhaka Medical College Hospital in the capital.
