Contempt rule against WASA MD

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The High Court (HC) yesterday (Thursday) issued a contempt of court rule against the managing director (MD) of the Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (WASA) for not complying with its 2011 directive to seal all sewerage lines to the Buriganga river and for making an untrue statement about sewerage lines connected to the river.  An HC bench asked WASA MD Taqsem A Khan to explain within two weeks why he should not be punished for committing contempt of court by not implementing its previous directive.

The HC bench, comprising Justice Gobinda Chandra Tagore and Justice Mohammad Ullah, came up with the rule after hearing on a petition filed by the Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB), seeking its order against WASA MD for not carrying out the court order to protect the Buriganga from pollution. On May 4, 2010, the HRPB had filed a writ petition before the HC, seeking immediate steps to prevent water pollution in the Buriganga.
