Etihad Airways boss asked to appear before HC on Aug 17

The High Court yesterday (July 21) again directed Country Manager of Etihad Airways Ashraful Kabir to appear before it on August 17 in connection with the incident of harassing and torturing two Bangladesh born women at Abu Dhabi International Airport. 

Ashraful Kabir yesterday appeared before the HC for explaining the incident, as per its earlier order passed on July 14.

The HC bench of Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik and Justice Gobinda Chandra Tagore yesterday passed the order after rejecting a petition submitted by Ashraful Kabir praying for exemption from personal appearance.
The court said that it will wait for the investigation reports to be made by the government authorities, and will examine those before exempting the country manager of Etihad Airways from personal appearance.
Tanzeen Bristy, one of the victims, filed the writ petition on July 12 to pass necessary orders against the Airways authorities.
Manzill Murshid appeared for the petitioner, while Barrister Siddiqur Rahman Khan stood for Ashraful.
