High Court wants to hear Jaha Alam's account

The High Court yesterday asked Jaha Alam to appear before it next Wednesday for his statement about his sufferings in jail and to know how he is doing now.

Jaha Alam was wrongly imprisoned for three years because of an identity mess-up. He got released on February 4, following a HC order.

Yesterday, the HC passed the order while hearing a rule issued by it on January 28 over the legality of Jaha Alam's wrongful imprisonment.

The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader gave one week's time to Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to submit documents over the cases in which Jaha Alam suffered in jail.

The court came up with the order after ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan prayed for more time to submit the documents.

During the proceedings, Advocate Amit Das Gupta, a Supreme Court lawyer who moved for Jaha Alam's release, told the court that the victim may appear before the court for explaining how he was arrested and suffered in jail.

Jaha Alam was on the court premises yesterday, he informed the court.

The court then asked him to produce Jaha Alam before it on Wednesday.
