A writ petition was filed with the High Court on Tuesday seeking first class facility in jail for opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and standing committee member Mirza Abbas, reports UNB.

The petition was submitted to the bench of Justice KM Kamrul Kader and Justice Mohammad Ali.

Mirza Fakhrul’s wife Rahat Ara Begum, Mirza Abbas’ wife Afroza Abbas and advocate AJ Mohammad Ali submitted the petition.

Raising the petition for hearing on Tuesday advocate Ali said, “This is a very urgent matter. Two former ministers have not been given division in jail.”

Later, the bench scheduled the hearing on the petition at 3:00 pm today.

In the early hours of Friday, a team of Detective Branch (DB) of police picked up Mirza Fakhrul and Mirza Abbas from their homes in separate raids in the capital city.

Later, they were shown arrested in a case filed over the clash between police and the party activists in the capital’s Naya Paltan area.

On Monday, a Dhaka court rejected the bail petition of 224 leaders and activists of BNP, including Fakhrul and Abbas, and sent them to jail, pending further legal procedures.
