Musa, arrested in 2016 for his alleged links with ISIS and the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), is in judicial remand and being tried for his purported role in radicalising young men.
The accused, who has a record of bad behaviour and violent acts in jail, shouted in the court that he does not believe in man-made laws and would not get justice, before throwing the shoe, Mukherjee said.
In 2018, Musa had attacked a jail warden and injured him at Presidency Correctional Home in the city.
