HC summons 5 over construction near Mahasthangarh

The High Court on Sunday summoned two Bogra local leaders of the ruling Awami League and three others on charges of constructing a road near Mahasthangarh historical place despite a HC order.

A bench of Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik and Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain directed them to appear before the court on January 30 for their statements in connection with the construction.

Local AL leaders are Khokon Sarkar and Sabuj Sarkar, officer-in-charge of Shibganj Police Station, curator and president of Mahasthangarh Mazar Unnayan Committee.

The court passed the order following an application by Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh stating that the two AL leaders are reportedly constructing a road near Mahasthangarh as the court ordered to stop construction work on December 7 last year.

On that day, the same bench directed the local administration to stop construction work near Mahasthangarh in the district to preserve the archaeological site.
