The High Court (HC) today (Jan 25) summoned three lawyers from Nilphamari including district bar association president Md Mamtazul Haque over indecent behavior with a judge.
The two other persons are- Advocate Md Azharul Islam and Advocate Ferdous Alam.
A High Court division bench of Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil passed the order, asking the three to appear before the court on February 8 and give their explanations.
The court came up with the order after Nilphamari Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-1 Judge (district and sessions judge) Golam Srawar filed a written complaint in this regard.
The High Court also issued a rule, asking why it shall not take punitive actions against the accused for contempt of court.
The Nilphamari judge in his written complaint said the three lawyers and their associates became aggressive and started verbally abusing and threatening him inside the courtroom on November 28 as the court canceled bail of accused in a case and sent them to jail. Feeling insecure, as the judge went inside his chamber from the courtroom, the accused continued abusing the judge.
The judge on November 29 sent the written complaint to Supreme Court registrar general, which was presented before the chief justice. The matter was later sent to this bench for disposal.
