The High Court on Tuesday issued a rule asking authorities concerned to explain as to why the court should not order to prepare a scheme to rehabilitate rape victims.
The court also asked the authorities concerned to explain in four weeks why they should not be directed to give Taka 50 lakh each to the families of two rape victims from Tangail and Rajshahi.
A nurse from Tangail was killed after gang rape and the schoolgirl from Rajshahi committed suicide after getting raped last month.
The court came up with the order after holding hearing on a writ filed by Children Charity Foundation Bangladesh on May 26.
