Legal notice ask authorities to move Oishi to prisonNew Age Online
A Supreme Court lawyer on Tuesday served separate legal notices on the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, the government and the police authorities for taking necessary steps to revoke the court's order that had sent Oishi Rahman to Juvenile Correction Centre.
The lawyer Md Eunus Ali Akond said Oishi was a 19-year old lady, accused of killing her parents. But she was sent to the national juvenile correction centre by a metropolitan magistrate on August 24. The lawyer said she is an adult as per section 2(a) (F) of the Children Act, 1974.
The notices served by him asked home secretary, the Inspector General of Police, the Dhaka Metropolitan Commissioner, the CMM, Deputy Commissioner of the Detective Branch, the officer-in-charge of the Paltan police station, the investigation officer of the couple murder case, and the National Juvenile Department Centre to take step to withdraw the order in 24 hours.
If authorities do not perform following the legal notices, Eunus will file a writ petition in this regard; it is learnt by New Age.
On August 16, the police recovered the bodies of Special Branch Mahfuzur Rahman and his wife from their residence in the capital’s Chamelibagh.
On August 17 to the couple daughter, Oishi Rahman, an O level student in Oxford International School, surrendered to the Paltan police and later confessed about the killings.
Meanwhile, the lawyer of Oishi Rahman, Prakash Ranjan Biswas said, he will seek revision of the orders made by the CMM Court before the Metropolitan Session Judge Court. Prakash insisted that Oishi was a minor and that a section of police officials were somehow trying to manipulate the offender’s age.
‘We are waiting for obtaining certified copies of various orders issued by the CMM court and than we will move to Metropolitan Session Judge Court,’ the lawyer said.
However, he said, the defence will comply with the Supreme Court order, in any case, as that is the highest court in Bangladesh.
