A writ has been filed with the High Court seeking its directives to provide the women with 'anti-rape device'for preventing sexual harassment.
Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust (BLAST) and Children's Charity Bangladesh Foundation (CCB Foundation) on Sunday filed the public interest litigation.
The hearing on the writ petition is likely to be held with the HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman.
The writ also sought HC directives on forming a committee with experts to bring the device from abroad.
In the writ, the petitioner said the anti-rape device can automatically call 999 when a woman wearing the device is in danger. This device is used in the developed countries.
