The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs issued a gazette notification in this regard on Thursday

Jahangir Alam Chowdhury, the special public prosecutor of Dhaka Anti-Terrorism Special Tribunal, has been removed from his post for negligence of duty.

The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs issued a gazette notification in this regard on Thursday.

No further details were released in the notification.

However, seeking anonymity an official of the ministry told Dhaka Tribune that the state lawyer had shown his serious ignorance in the blogger and writer Abhijit Roy murder case at a talk show on a private TV channel on October 16.

On this live program, Special Public Prosecutor Jahangir Alam Chowdhury was connected from his residence and failed to answer different questions which were made by the anchor Mithila Farzana and panel speaker Shyamal Dutta, Editor of the Daily Bhorer Kagoj and eminent architect Mobassher Hossen. 

The discussion was on "Why the plaintiff Professor Ajay Roy, also the father of Abhijit, did not appear before the court to give his account," the anchor asked to the state lawyer when the incident was happened. 

In reply, the lawyer said: "It happened one or one and a half years ago."

Shyamal Dutta said: "You are the state lawyer for this case, but you did not know exactly when the incident took place." 

Then, the anchor of the show said: "Blogger and writer Abhijit Roy was murdered on 26 February 2015, four years ago." 

Then the lawyer said: "I am busy with the holye artisan case."

Shyamal Dutta said: "You are a state lawyer, but you didn't meet with the plaintiff."

The lawyer replied saying: "In the law, there has no provision of meeting with the plaintiff."

Then, Shyamal Dutta said do you understand what the condition of cases would be, if government appoint lawyer as like you.  How will the case (Abhijit Roy murder case) continue by you as a lawyer?

In his reaction, Jahangir said: "I don't know why the ministry removed me. I even don't know how I have neglected my duty. The government can appoint anybody any time if it wishes. I have no comments in this regard."

"Still I didn't receive any letter in this regard," he added.
