Don’t arrest Mannan sans court order: HC


Dhaka – The High Court on Tuesday asked the government not to show suspended Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) mayor MA Mannan arrested in any criminal case without court order.
A two-member HC bench comprising Justice Quamrul Islam Siddique and Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif also asked for not detaining him at jail gate showing him arrested in any case. UNB news agency reported
At the same time, the court issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain why his arrest at jail gate showing him arrested in new case should not be declared illegal.
Home secretary, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Deputy Commissioner and Police Super of Gazipur and officers-in-charge of all police stations of the district and others concerned have been asked to reply to the rule.
On November 24, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld the bail order given by the HC to suspended GCC mayor MA Mannan, keeping no further bar to his release.
However, on the following day, Mannan was shown arrested in another case.
Later, he filed a writ petition with the HC.
On February 11 last year, law enforcers arrested Mannan. He was shown arrested in 22 cases. However on March 2, he was released on bail. On April 15, law enforcers again arrested him.
