The High Court on Wednesday asked the authorities concerned to take immediate steps to stop movement of acid-based battery-run three wheelers across the country as they release harmful lead in the air.

The High Court bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman passed the order after hearing a petition.

Kazi Jashimul Islam, president of Bagh Eco Motor Limited filed the writ seeking its directives to stop the movement of such easy bikes across the country as the lead is harmful to humans.

Advocate Atik Touhidul Islam stood for the petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Amit Das Gupta represented the state.

Advocate Atik said according to the media reports, there are over four million acid-based battery-run three wheelers and it’s not environment-friendly as it has a lead which is harmful to the human body.

Due to the presence of lead, people are being infected with many diseases, said the writ.
