Ex-Civil Surgeon absolved over slapping ADC
Laxmipur: A Laxmipur court on Wednesday absolved a former Civil Surgeon of the district in a case in which he was sentenced to three months' imprisonment for allegedly assaulting an additional deputy commissioner (ADC).
Additional District Magistrate Iqbal Hussain passed the order after an appeal was filed by the former Civil Surgeon Dr Salahuddin Sharif around 3.00 pm.
Salahuddin’s lawyer advocate Rasel Mahmud Manna confirmed the matter.
Earlier on Monday, Dr Salahuddin Sharif was sentenced to three months' imprisonment by a mobile court, led by Sadar Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Kamruzzaman, for allegedly assaulting ADC Sheikh Morshedul.
Dr Salauddin and Morshedul went to Kakoli Shishu Angan in the district town to pick up their grandson and son respectively around 10:15am. The duo locked into a brawl centring shoving at the crowded school gate. At one stage of brawl, the ADC slapped the retired civil surgeon and he also retaliated by doing the same.
Later, police detained Dr Salauddin and produced him before the mobile court which handed down the verdict.
However, a Laxmipur court on Tuesday granted bail to the former civil surgeon on a bond of Tk 5,000.
The High Court summoned the additional deputy commissioner (ADC) of Laxmipur and Sadar UNO to explain the three-month imprisonment of former civil surgeon of the district allegedly for assaulting the ADC.
A two-member HC bench of Justice Kazi Rezaul Haque and Justice Mohammad Ullah on Tuesday asked the duo -- ADC Sheikh Morshedul Islam and UNO Kamruzzaman -- to appear before the court at 10:30am on December 13 to place their explanations.
