HC wants to know steps on judges’ security

STAFF REPORTER, DHAKA

The High Court (HC) yesterday asked the government about the steps  taken to ensure the security of judges, lawyers and officials in courts across the country.

It also wanted to know about the steps taken against those police officials who were in charge of security at the Cumilla additional district and sessions judge’s court, where a man had been killed.

On July 15, during the court proceeding, a murder accused was stabbed to death by another in front of a judge and police personnel inside a packed courtroom in Cumilla, raising serious questions about courtroom security.

The HC bench also wanted to know how did the person manage to enter a courtroom with a knife. The bench came to the conclusion that it was possible because of police negligence.

The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader gave the order during a hearing on a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer advocate Ishrat Hasan. The HC bench adjourned the hearing for two weeks and asked the authorities concerned to inform the court by July 30 about the steps taken to ensure proper security of the courts across the country.

Deputy attorney general Abdullah-Al-Mahmud Bashar represented the government during the day’s hearing.

Ishrat Hasan filed the writ petition on July 16, seeking HC directives on the government authorities to take proper security measures for the protection of judges and courts.

After filing the petition, advocate Ishrat Hasan told reporters: “As the wife of a judge, I am worried because of the grisly murder inside a courtroom. That’s why I have filed this petition seeking directives to provide security to all the judges and courtrooms across the country.” In the petition, Ishrat Hasan mentioned that her husband was a judge and that she was concerned about her husband’s security following the killing in Cumilla on Monday. The petitioner prayed to the HC to pass a necessary order in this regard.
