HC orders to withdraw Sakhipur UNO, OC
The High Court ordered concerned authorities to withdraw Tangail’s Sakhipur Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Mohammad Rafiqul Islam and Sakhipur police OC Md Maksudul Alam.
The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Ashish Ranjan Das gave the order on Tuesday after finishing the hearing on their suo moto rule over awarding two-year jail to a schoolboy by a mobile court for allegedly making some remarks on Facebook regarding a local MP, reports bdnews24.com.
The court directed the public administration and home ministries and the inspector general of police to withdraw the officials.
The court also acquitted a schoolboy after cancelling his two-year jail term.
The court ordered the chief judicial magistrate of Tangail to launch a judicial inquiry based on the statement given by the ninth grader.
The bench on Sep 20 had granted the boy permanent bail and summoned the UNO and the OC after Supreme Court lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan placed before them a news report on the schoolboy’s jailing. –RH
