Dhaka, Sept 30 (UNB) – The High Court has observed that the Narail District and Session Judge Sheikh Abdul Ahad committed a grave mistake by exempting an accused at the charge-framing stage considering his professional stance and self-defence statements, which is illegal and contradictory to justice.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman came up with the observation in the full text of the verdict released on Monday.
On August 29, the High Court directed the Law Ministry to keep Abdul Ahad away from conducting criminal cases for one year for exempting the prime accused in the murder case.
It had also asked the ministry to take necessary steps to present the matter before the General Administration (GA) Committee of the Supreme Court and revoked the trial court order acquitting prime accused Mallick Majharul Islam alias Majha but upheld his bail.
On July 7, the HC issued a rule seeking explanation as to why the lower court order exempting the prime accused should not be cancelled and why judicial power of the judge would not be withdrawn.
Enamul Sheikh was shot to death at Chandigarh in Kalia upazila of Narail on February 10, 2015.
Victim’s brother Nazmul Huda filed a case with Kalia Police Station in this regard.
Police pressed charges against 68 accused, including Majha, in the murder case.
However, Narail Session’s Judge Sheikh Abdul Ahad framed charges against 67 accused acquitting Majha on June 11 last. It also granted him bail on January 30, 2017.
Meanwhile, the plaintiff filed a revision case with the High Court against the lower court order.
