The High Court today ordered the Criminal Investigation Department to enquire how the fake arrest warrants are made and who are involved in such activities.
The court asked Sherpur’s chief judicial magistrate to examine whether the arrest warrant issued against Gonoshasthaya Kendra’s programme officer Awlad Hossain are fake.
If the arrest warrants against Awlad are fake, the chief judicial magistrate of Sherpur will grant bail to Awlad, the court said.
During hearing a writ petition, the HC ordered Awlad to appear before this court on January 15 if he is granted bail by that time in the Complaint Registered (CR) case.
If Awlad is not granted bail, the law enforcers will produce him before the HC on January 15.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mustafizur Rahman passed the order following a writ petition filed by Awlad’s wife Shahnaj Parvin seeking necessary order.
Then, he issued a rule asking the government to explain why it should not be ordered to produce Awlad, who is now in Sherpur jail, before this court to show that he was not detained illegally.
Shahnaj Parvin filed the writ petition with the HC on December 9 saying that Ashulia police arrested her husband on October 30.
Later on, fake arrest warrant was issued against Awlad and he was produced before different courts of Dhaka, Cox’s Bazar, Bagerhat and Sherpur, his wife claimed.
The Sherpur court prayed to the HC to order police to produce Awlad before the HC to demonstrate that he was not detained illegally.
Petitioner’s lawyer Emadul Haque Bashir told The Daily Star that some cases were filed against Awlad under the women and children repression prevention act.
Advocate Jainul Abedin appeared for the writ petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukdar represented the state.
