The High Court Division on Monday directed the police superintendents of Rangpur, Dinajpur and Nilphamari to immediately sue 31 illegal brick kilns owners for submitting forged HC orders to the Nilphamari deputy commissioner asking him not to stop their businesses.
A bench of Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam and Justice Mohammad Ali also ordered the SPs to investigate into the forgery.
The bench directed the Criminal Investigation Department to supervise the investigation and to provide the needed support to the SPs.
The SPs were directed to submit progress reports of the probe at the next hearing on June 25.
The court issued the directives after the police produced the owners of 31 illegal brick kilns in Rangpur, Dinajpur and Nilphamari.
On April 30, the court had directed the police to produce the kilns owners who were set free after the hearing.
The forgery came to the notice of the bench after deputy attorney general Al-Amin Sarker prayed to it for expeditious disposal of two writ petitions with which three forged orders of the same bench were attached.
Court officials could not find the orders as they had been forged by the kiln owners. The DC sent copies of the ‘forged’ orders to the office of the attorney general for the disposal of the writ petitions.
M Yusuf Hossain Humayun and AJ Mohammad Ali appeared for the brick kiln owners.
