Writ seeks judicial inquiry into Banshkhali shooting

A writ was filed with the High Court on Thursday seeking judicial inquiry into the death of five workers of a coal-based power plant of S Alam Group in police firing  in Banshkhali upazila of Chattogram.

Advocate Syeda Nasreen filed the writ petition on behalf of the human rights organization Ain o Salish Kendra.

The writ also sought compensation of Tk 3 crore to the families of the deceased and of Tk 2 crore to the families of the wounded.

While talking to the media, Nasreen said that the High Court bench headed by Justice M Enayetur Rahim could hear the writ petition next week.

Earlier on April 18, a legal notice was sent by the human right organisation to take necessary actions against those involved in the incident.

Home , Law , Industries and Commerce Secretaies, Inspector General of Police, among others, were made  respondents to the notice.
