Trial proceedings of Dhaka’s lower courts suspended today over demise of a Public Prosecutor

All trial proceedings of lower courts in Dhaka were suspended today due to the death of Dhaka District and Sessions Judge's Court Public Prosecutor Khandaker Abdul Mannan.

"The lower courts in Dhaka did not hold the trial proceedings for showing the respect towards Public Prosecutor Khandaker Abdul Mannan," Hossain Ali Khan Hassan, General Secretary of Dhaka Bar Association (DBA) told The Daily Star.

He said Advocate Mannan was infected with Covid-19 a few days ago and recovered from it but he fell ill again and was admitted to Square Hospital in the capital.

Abdul Mannan died around 7:00pm on January 13, while undergoing treatment there, Hassan added.

His namaz-e-janaza was held at the Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court in Dhaka at 11:00am today, the lawyers said.

While attending in the event, Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh said "We are deeply saddened by his death. Mannan had all the virtues a lawyer needs to have …He was respected by all for his qualities," the mayor added.

Advocate Khandaker Abdul Mannan was the former president and general secretary of DBA. The veteran lawyer was 70.
