HC issues contempt of court rule against GCC Mayor

   DHAKA, Nov 24, 2021 (BSS) - The High Court (HC) today issued a rule, 
asking four people, including Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) Mayor Jahangir 
Alam, to reply within one week as to why the court shall not initiate a 
contempt of court proceeding against them.  

   The other three accused in the case are - Alfaz of Painshal village under 
Joydebpur Police Station, Harunor Rashid alias Thandu of Poschim Dogori 
village under the same police station and Fazlul Huq of BK Bari village under 
the same police station.

    A High Court division bench comprising Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice 
Khandaker Diliruzzaman passed the order holding a hearing on a contempt 
petition filed in this regard.

  According to the case documents, the petitioner Ashraf Uddin Ahmed had 
filed a writ with the High Court regarding the possession of a land in 
Mirjapur union under Gazipur Sadar upazila. After hearing his plea, the court 
had issued an injunction in his favour and he was continuing farming on the 
land like before.  

   "But at the start of this year, Mayor Jahangir Alam and his men obstructed 
Ashraf Uddin Ahmed from using his land, saying they have power of attorney 
for using the land. After that the petitioner filed this contempt plea and 
the court today issued the rule," petitioner's lawyer Barrister Abul Kalam 
Azad said.

  Deputy Attorney General Amit Das Gupta stood for the state at the hearing.
