30-50 prisoners being transported on each prison van, says a lawyer

The High Court on Wednesday asked the attorney general to speak to the authorities concerned to ensure that health safety rules are followed while arresting Covid lockdown rule-breakers, taking them to police stations, and producing before lower courts.

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim asked Attorney General AM Amin Uddin to address the matter after Supreme Court lawyer Md Asad Uddin placed the issue before the court.

"Lawyer Md Asad Uddin said around 400-500 people are being arrested and punished for breaking Covid-19 lockdown rules every day. About 30-50 of them are being taken to the police station and court on a single prison van, ignoring health safety rules. Health safety cannot be breached while punishing the rule-breakers, " Justice Enayetur Rahim told Attorney General Amin Uddin.

In reply, Attorney General Amin Uddin said: "I will talk to the authorities concerned about this issue so that appropriate steps are taken to ensure health safety rules when the arrestees are carried to police stations and produced before courts."

Justice M Enayetur Rahim also asked the attorney general to talk to the registrar general of the Supreme Court so that appropriate measures are taken.
