|Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque|
Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque on November 4 said he administered oath to Ruhul Quddus Babu and M Khasruzzaman, whom the last CJ refused to sworn in, for upholding Constitution.
Talking to reporters at his chamber, ABM Khairul Haque urged the lawyers to stop disciplinary and to obey laws.
Referring demonstrations and ultimatums of the pro-BNP controlled Supreme Court Bar Association for his resignation, the CJ termed these 'untoward'.
Oath to the four newly appointed judges was supposed to be held at 10:30 am but the time delayed for strong protest of the pro-BNP lawyers.
At about 11:00, the CJ with tight security of the armed police entered the judges' lounge and administered oath to them one by one.
Firstly, he sworn in the reportedly controversial judges-- Ruhul Quddus Babu and M Khasruzzaman-- and later other two-- Farid Ahmed and Nazrul Islam Talukder, amidst agitation of the lawyers.
SCBA alleged that Babu was a prime accused in a murder case and Khasruzzaman took part in vandalising in the SC in 2006.
