A writ petition was filed with the High Court division today seeking the judicial investigation into the recent railway crossing accidents that took place in Mirsarai and Gopalganj.
Mohiuddin Roni, who has been protesting alone in demand of ending irregularities and mismanagement in Bangladesh Railway since 7 July, has filed the writ petition.
Barrister Tapas Kanti Bal, lawyer of the writ petitioner, said that the petitioner sought directions to investigate these accidents under the leadership of a retired judge of the Appellate Division via his writ.
An adequate amount of compensation has also been asked for the victims of railway crossing accidents in Mirsarai and Gopalganj districts, he added.
Roni, a student of Dhaka University's theatre and performance studies department, had been protesting against the mismanagement and corruption of the railways since July 7.
Upon the assurance of proper measures following an investigation by senior railway officials, he suspended the protest on July 25.
