The High Court has summoned Faridpur Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Mainul Islam to appear before the court and explain why he recorded same confessional statements from three accused in a murder case.

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman issued the summons order on Wednesday. 

The court ordered the Faridpur chief judicial magistrate to appear before the court on October 8.

Barrister Ruhul Kuddus Kajal accompanied by Advocate Nusrat Yasmin stood for the accused. 

According to the lawyer, during two appeal hearings against a lower court order the High Court observed that on June 28, 2018, Faridpur Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Mainul Islam recorded confessional statements of three accused within two hours and all three of the statements were exactly same.

According to the law, at least three hours' time must be given to an accused for making confessional statements to the magistrate, the lawyer said.

The accused are charged with murdering a school boy named Antar. The case is now under trial with the Faridpur women and children repression prevention tribunal.
