Ministry to suspend judge for 'possessing' Phensedyl
The Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs yesterday decided to suspend a senior assistant judge of Bhola District Judge's Court after he was arrested for allegedly having 342 bottles of Phensedyl in his possession.
The ministry decided to file a departmental case against Judge Javed Imam and close him to the law and justice department. A proposal regarding the suspension decision was sent to the Supreme Court for its opinion, said a press release from the ministry. Meanwhile, a Dhaka court rejected a bail petition of Javed and ordered to send him to jail after police produced him before it.
In the forwarding report, police said Javed drove a microbus from Jessore to Dhaka on December 1 carrying the Phensedyl bottles in a sack and a loaded licensed pistol.
On information, police arrested him in front of the capital's Eden Women's College around 7:20pm. Police prayed to confine the judge in jail until further investigation was completed.
