The veteran lawyer is suffering from old-age complications

Veteran Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Rafique-Ul Huq has been taken home from the hospital with the permission of doctors.

He was hospitalized on Thursday at the capital’s Ad Din Hospital.

The eminent jurist, currently 85, was admitted to the hospital with urine infection and old-age complications, Ad Din Hospital Director Dr Nahida Yeasmin said on Saturday.

After examination, he was kept in the VIP cabin of the hospital and was treated under the supervision of Dr Richmond Gomez, said Tabibur Rahman Akash, the public relations officer of the hospital, reports BSS.

The eminent jurist, who was appointed the country's attorney general in 1990, played a crucial role as a lawyer during the last caretaker government, fighting cases for Awami League President Sheikh Hasina, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, and many other politicians.

Born to a Muslim family in 1935, Rafique began his career as a lawyer in Kolkata (the then Calcutta) High Court in India in 1960.

He started practising at the Dhaka High Court two years later, before doing so at the Pakistan Supreme Court in 1965. Rafique started working as a senior advocate of the Appellate Division of Bangladesh Supreme Court in 1975.
