Wedding organisers fined Tk 10,000 in Thakurgaon

A mobile court on Friday imposed a fine of Tk 10,000 on the organisers of a wedding ceremony in Sadar upazila of Thakurgaon for defying the lockdown restrictions.

Acting on a tip-off that Bhagirath Barman and Sri Election had organised the wedding of their son and daughter, respectively, in Dakkhin Batina Baniapara village, the mobile court went to their houses and fined them Tk 5,000 each.

The mobile court was led by Sadar Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mohammad Abdullah Al Mamun.

Bangladesh has enforced a seven-day countrywide stricter lockdown, with effect from July 1, amid a surge in Covid-19 cases.

As per the government directives, all kinds of public gatherings, including social programmes, birthday and picnic parties, political and religious events will remain suspended until further notice.
