The court has asked BSTI to submit report in this regard by June 23

The High Court has asked authorities concerned to take strong actions against traders using chemicals on fruits.

The bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan, and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order as it expressed discontent on a report submitted by Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institute (BSTI) on the use of chemicals on fruits on Tuesday.

The court asked BSTI to make a complete report, and submit it by June 23.

Two other reports were also submitted on behalf of the director general of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), and inspector general of police, reports BSS.

The High Court on May 20, ordered the authorities concerned to form teams to monitor fruit markets, and warehouses across the country so that no one can use chemicals on fruits.

The court had asked the inspector general of police, director general of RAB, chairman and director of BSTI to form teams within the following seven days. 

It also asked them to submit reports on this by Tuesday (June 18).

The High Court made the order after holding a hearing on a supplementary petition filed by a rights group, Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB).
