Metropolitan Magistrate Tofazzal Hossain passed the order after the police produced the duo before the court with a 7-day remand prayer.
Nipun's father Advocate Nitai Roy Chowdhury and their defence counsels prayed to the court for the duo's bail.
On November 16, another Dhaka court placed Nipun and Ruma on a 5-day remand each in another case. The duo were sent to jail on November 22 after completion of their remand.
