Shillong, May 29 : A lower court in the Indian state of Meghalaya has rejected BNP leader Salahuddin Ahmed's bail plea.
He was denied bail on Friday because of the red corner notice Interpol's Dhaka office issued against Ahmed.
The BNP joint secretary general was arrested in state capital Shillong on May 11 for illegally crossing the border into India.
He is currently undergoing treatment at the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGIHMS) while under judicial custody.
He had a hearing on his bail application on Friday afternoon at the Court of the District and Sessions Judge of East Khasi Hills.
Neither the Meghalaya Police nor the public prosecutor raised any objection to Ahmed's bail petition during the hearing.
But Sessions Judge L Kharsiing was informed about the red corner notice against the former state minister by Meghalaya DGP.
The court reviewed several technicalities before rejecting Ahmed's bail plea.
