The High Court on Thursday directed the prison authorities to take an urgent initiative to examine the health of Mainul Hosein, a former adviser to the military-backed caretaker government.
The authorities of Rangpur prison and Rangpur Medical College Hospital were urged to submit the medical report by next Sunday.
Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir passed the order in a response to a petition.
Mainul's wife Saju Hosein filed two writ petitions on Wednesday over the issues. The court has given an interim order on the petition.
"The way he was attacked under police protection while presenting him before the court has raised questions about his security. Moreover, his physical condition deteriorated since the attack," Masud Rana, a lawyer for Mainul said.
