A court in Dhaka has granted a five-day remand to interrogate BNP joint secretary general Habib-un-Nabi Khan Sohel.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate KHM Toha passed the order on Wednesday after DB sub- inspector Abdul Karim produced him before the court seeking a 10-day remand.
The court also rejected a bail petition filed by Sohel's lawyer Sanaullah Miah.
Sohel was arrested from the city's Gulshan-2 area on Tuesday evening in a case filed with Shahbagh police station over vandalism.
The president of Dhaka south city unit BNP went into hiding after BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia was sent to jail on February 8 in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
BNP sources said Sohel is facing over 50 cases on acts of sabotage and other charges.
