HC keeps Moudud’s writ for house waiting
Barrister Moudud Ahmed’s writ petition challenging the legality of authorities evicting him from his Gulshan residence has been kept in waiting till July 2.
The High Court bench of Justice Syed Muhammad Dastagir Husain and Justice Md Ataur Rahman Khan passed the order today after a brief hearing.
Moudud’s lawyer AJ Mohammad Ali told the court his client was illegally evicted. He said Rajuk did not issue any notice and that a review plea on the Supreme Court’s order was yet to be released.
He prayed to the court to issue a ruling questioning the legality of the eviction activity.
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam opposed the petition saying that Moudud Ahmed filed a case with a lower court over this issue. “In this situation the HC cannot issue a rule on this matter.”
After the order was passed, the attorney general told The Daily Star he will not comment in this regard as Moudud was already evicted from his residence following the apex court’s order.
Senior BNP leader Moudud Ahmed was evicted from his three-decade-long residence yesterday as he lost the legal battle over the ownership of the house worth Tk 300 crore in the capital's Gulshan.
