The High Court on Monday night asked the officer-in-charge of the Gulshan police station to allow two daughters of a retired Biman Bangladesh Airlines captain to enter into their father’s house for which the two siblings staged a sit-in for 21 days.

The two sisters Musfika Mostafa and Mubashara Mostafa tried to take possession of the three-storey house on Road No 95 in Gulshan 2 area after a woman named Anju Kapur claimed to be the successor of the house as a widow of retired captain Mostafa Jaglul Wahid, who died on October 10.

The High Court bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Ahmed Sohel issued the directive at 7:30pm after an online hearing, taking into cognizance newspaper reports published on Monday.

The court also directed the two sisters, Anju Kapur and the OC to appear before it on November 1 for hearing.

The court asked OC to provide security to the two sisters at the house and file a compliance report to the Supreme Court special officer Mohamamd Saifur Rahman on Monday night.

According to newspaper reports, the OC refused to record a general dairy filed by the two sisters.
