HC petition seeks PPE for journos, cops

A Supreme Court lawyer yesterday filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking its directive on the government to supply personal protective equipment (PPE) to law enforcers and journalists.

Advocate Md JR Khan Rabin submitted the petition as a public interest litigation, requesting the HC to order authorities of the government to improve diagnosis, treatment and quarantine facilities for coronavirus patients.

The petition said law enforcers and journalists have to go to public places to discharge duties, and therefore they need PPE to protect themselves from the risk of coronavirus.

The HC may hear on the petition today, Rabin said.
