Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain temporally seized trial conducting power of Mosammat Kamrunnahar of Dhaka 7th Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal and asked her not to sit in the courtroom from today.

“The chief justice issued the order after discussing the matter with the senior judges of the Supreme Court,” Supreme Court spokesperson Mohammad Saifur Rahman told BSS.

Rahman, also a special officer at the High Court Division, said according to the order, the said judge was asked not to sit in the courtroom from 9.30 am today.

“Supreme Court administration sent a letter to the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Division to withdraw the judge from her current officer and attach her with the ministry,” he added.

The judge created a commotion across the country with her observation, asking police not to register rape cases 72 hours after the incident.

She came up with the observation while pronouncing judgement in the sensational Raintree hotel double rape case.

Dhaka 7th Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal on November 11 pronounced the judgement, acquitting all the accused of the charges.
