HC issues rule asking law for ‘safe custody’

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The High Court yesterday issued a rule asking the government to explain why it should not be directed to formulate an appropriate law or bringing an amendment to the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) of 1898 incorporating the provision of ‘safe custody’ to ensure safety of victims.

It also asked the authorities concerned to explain why the power exercised by the chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM) of Dhaka in dealing with the case of ‘safe custody’ of Lira Burua should not be declared illegal and without lawful authority. A total of six persons including secretaries of women and children affairs ministry and home, and Bangladesh Mahila Parishad have been made respondents to reply to the rule within two weeks.  The HC bench comprising Justice Syed Refat Ahmed and Justice Iqbal Kabir issued the rule following a writ petition filed by father of Lira Barua challenging the legality of lower court order sending Lira Barua to safe custody under Mahila Parishad.

On October 30 in 2018, Lira came out from her house and submitted an application seeking assistance to go to safe custody. Later, police produced Lira before the CMM court when the court sent her to safe custody under Mahila Parishad.

Later, her father filed a writ petition with the HC challenging the legality of the lower court order. After primary hearing, the HC bench yesterday issued the rule.

Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua appeared for the petitioner.
