Writ challenging martial law of army men during Zia regime filed

A writ was filed on Sunday with High Court challenging the legality of holding trial of army men under martial law and concealing bodies of the victims executed during the regime of Ziaur Rahman.

Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Matiur Rahman filed the writ with the concerned department of the High Court on behalf of 88 aggrieved families.

The writ also sought High Court direction to compensate the victim families.

The lawyer said the matter would be mentioned before the High Court division bench comprising Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader.

Senior jurist Advocate Yusuf Hossain Humayun is expected to move the case before the court.
