HC stays Rajuk’s summon against Dr Kamal’s daughters
The High Court Division on Sunday stayed for three months Rajdhani Unnayan Kartipakkha’s summon in which Dr Kamal Hossain’s daughters Sara Hossain and Dina Hossain were asked to appear before it on Monday to give statements regarding the allegation that they breached terms as lessees by renting out a government house in Gulshan to Kuwait Embassy.
The court in a ruling also asked the government and Rajuk to explain in two weeks why the Rajuk’s notice issued on November 29 summoning Sara Hossain and Dina Hossain by rejecting their replies to the allegation would not be declared as ‘unlawful’.
A bench of Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by Dina Hossain.
