The High Court today rejected a plea filed by sacked Rab official Lt Col (retd) Tareque Sayeed Mohammad for scrapping the trial against him in Narayanganj seven-murder case.
The High Court bench of M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Amir Hossain passed the order after conclusion of the petition’s hearing on Sunday (Mar 13).
There is no legal bar for the trial court to continue the trial proceedings as of the case against Tareque Sayeed following the HC order, Shaikh AKM Moniruzzaman Kabir, deputy attorney general told The Daily Star.
Earlier on March 7, a judge of another HC bench felt embarrassed to hear the petition of Tareque Sayeed.
