HC presses on training for mobile court magistrates

The High Court (HC) on Thursday emphasized on providing training executive magistrates conducting mobile courts as recently some inconsistency were seen in their operations.

The High Court division virtual bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim came up with the observations while holding further hearing on a plea for Suo moto order regarding sentencing two minors to one-month jail by a mobile court in Netrokona under the Child Marriage Restraint Act, 2017.

The High Court today also sought written explanation by August 26 from the executive magistrate concerned.

Earlier on August 4, the High Court had ordered authorities concerned to release the two minors.

Netrokona Atpara upazila assistant commissioner (land) Sultana Razia recently sentenced the two minors to one-month jail through a mobile court for getting married.

Sultana Razia, who is also the executive magistrate of the upazila, had ordered police to send the two minors to the Child Development Centre in Gazipur.
