A writ has been filed with the High Court challenging the legality of Mahbubey Alam continuing as the attorney general despite he crossed the retirement age of 67.
Supreme Court lawyer Yunus Ali Akand filed the writ on Monday.
Seeking a rule in this regard, the writ wanted to know by what authority Mahbubey Alam is holding the office as he crossed 67 years.
According to the Article 96 of the constitution, the age limit for SC judged is 67 years.
Hearing on the writ will be held in the HC bench of Justice Tariq Ul Hakim and Justice M Iqbal Kabir on February 23.
Earlier on January 24, 2014, the HC summarily rejected a similar writ petition challenging Mahbubey Alam's holding of the AG office.
