A court here on Tuesday sent Masud Sayedee, chairman of Indurkani upazila parishad and son of convicted war criminal Delawar Hossain Sayedee, to jail in a case filed under the Explosive Substances Act.
Additional District and Sessions Judge Shamsul Haque passed the order when Masud surrendered before his court on expiry of his six-week bail obtained from the High Court.

The following day, officer-in-charge of Indukani Police Station filed a case accusing three named and 12 unnamed Jamaat men, including Masud.UNB.
