Court asks Ministry to consult with the Supreme Court before taking actions

The High Court has ordered the Ministry of Law Affairs to suspend Narail District and Sessions Judge Sheikh Abdul Ahad from criminal case proceedings for the next one year. 

The court also asked the Ministry to consult with the Supreme Court and take necessary actions against the Narail judge, who exempted the main accused in the Enamul murder case.

The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order on Thursday. 

Enamul Haque was shot dead in front of Chondinagar Government Primary School in Barnail Bazar area of Narail on February 10, 2015.

The following day, Enamul’s brother Nazmul Huda filed the case with the Kalia Police Station. 

A total of 67 people were accused in the case where Mollik Majharul Islam was made the prime accused.

The Narail judge exempted Mollik and formed complaint against the remaining accused on June 10.

Nazmul Huda filed a petition with the High Court seeking the cancellation of the order of the Narail Judge.

On July 7, the court ordered the judge to explain why his judicial powers should not be curtailed for exempting the main accused in such a sensational murder case.

On July 10, the Narail judge sent a written apology to the Supreme Court registrar general’s office.

On July 30, Sheikh Abdul Ahad gave an unconditional apology to the High Court for exempting the prime accused, when the attorney general’s office placed the copy before the bench as per its July 7 order.

The same day the court set the next hearing date of this issue on August 20.
