LAXMIPUR, Feb 22: Following a letter of the High Court, the infrastructure of Laxmipur Ainjibee Samity building at the district court area has been ordered to be removed within 15 days, according to sources.
The letter, signed by Additional Registrar of the High Court's Administrative and Judiciary Division Md Sabbir Foyez, has also been given to the offices of district judge, deputy commissioner, police super, and Public Works.
It was alleged that the Samity continued construction of their building despite repeated orders of stopping the work. A portion of district Awami League is assisting the Samity in this connection, it was further alleged. Sources from the DC office and the court said, after the Samity started the construction, the DC office and the executive engineer of the Public Works Division informed the matter to the concerned ministry separately.
Later, Director of the project titled "Chief Judicial Magistrate Court Building Construction (1st phase) in 64 Districts" Md Zahid Hossen came to Laxmipur and, after investigating the matter, submitted a report to the office concerned. As the DC, with the help of police, resisted the construction work in January last, the lawyers continued court withdrawal and brought accusations against the District and Sessions Judge Akhter Hossen.
As the court was running, the lawyers attacked the District and Sessions Judge building and injured eight persons. Chief Justice (CJ) Surendra Kumar Sinha attended a meeting here on January 13 and expressed his disgust over the incident. Later, President of Ainjibee Samity GAH Abdur Nur and GS Rafiq Ullah assured the CJ of stopping the construction work.
