A court in Chattogram on Tuesday sent Saraipara Ward Councillor Saber Ahmed to jail  in connection with a case filed for killing Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leader Mahiuddin Sohel.

Chattogram Metropolitan Magistrate Akbar Hossain Mridha passed the order rejected Saber's bail plea after a hearing the case.
