Bangladesh Nationalist Party acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir
The High Court on Tuesday ordered the authorities to admit Bangladesh Nationalist Party acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University for treatment.
The vacation bench comprising of Justice Naima Haider and Justice Iqbal Kabir issued the rule after hearing a writ petition filed by Fakhrul’s wife Rahat Ara Begum, United News of Bangladesh reports.
Mentioning that Fakhrul has been ailing with different health complications, including diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiac disorder, Rahat Ara Begum in her writ petition sought for a HC’s order to admit her husband to Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation in Diabetes (BIRDEM) Hospital for his treatment.
Barrister Mahbub Uddin Khokon and Barrister Ehsanur Rahman argued for the petitioner during the hearing on Monday while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state.
Talking to reporters after the hearing, Ehsanur Rahman told reporters that the court had issued a rule asking the authorities why Fakhrul should not be taken to BSMMU and given the proper treatment.
Home Secretary, Inspector General of Police, Inspector General of Prisons, Deputy Jailer of Kashimpur Jail and two others were made respondents to the rule.
Fakhrul has been accused in various cases including the ones for subversive activities.
On January 6, police arrested Fakhrul from in front of the National Press Club in the capital.
