A court has granted a two-day fresh remand to interrogate actress Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Amirul Haider Chowdhury passed the order on Friday, reports UNB.

Earlier, Mohammad Rafiqul Islam, inspector of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit and the investigation officer of the case, produced Nawshaba before his court on expiry of her 4-day remand and sought a 10-day fresh remand.

The court also rejected the bail petition filed by her lawyer.

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained the actress from Uttara area in the capital on August 4 over spreading rumours on Facebook over the attack on protesting students.

In a Facebook live, Nawshaba claimed that the attackers killed two students and gouged out the eyes of another at Jigatala intersection.

In her Facebook live, she requested people to get united, take to the streets to 'protect' the students as they were attacked by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists.
