The High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail petition of former Sonagazi Police Station officer-in-charge Moazzem Hossain in a case filed under the Digital Security Act.

Moazzem will have to spend more time in prison after the bench of Justice Md Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Khizir Hayat threw out his petition.

Advocate Ahasanullah stood for Moazzem while Attorney General Mahabubey Alam represented the state.

The police officer had sought bail from the bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Ashraful Kamal on July 2.

He is accused of unlawfully interrogating Feni madrasa girl Nusrat Jahan Rafi and recording the incident on phone. A video of the incident went viral on the social media.
