HC summons Prothom Alo joint editor

Update : 02 Mar 2014, 08:12 PM

The High Court yesterday ordered Prothom Alo Joint Editor Mizanur Rahman Khan to appear in person before it on March 6 to explain his position regarding his writings published on the Bengali daily on granting anticipatory bail.

It also issued a rule seeking explanations from the newspapers’ Editor Matiur Rahman and Mizanur the same day as to why they should not be punished for contempt of court for publishing two such columns.

The bench of Justice Naima Haider and Justice Zafar Ahmed, on its own motion, passed the order as Mizanur in one of his articles directly criticised the bench for granting anticipatory bail “indiscriminately.”
