Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain has assigned two judicial officers to check anomalies at the affidavit department of the Supreme Court (SC).

Apex court’s Deputy Registrar (Joint District Judge) Abdur Rahman and Assistant Registrar (Senior Assistant Judge) Omar Haider have been assigned to oversee functions of the affidavit wing.

Earlier on December 2, Chief Justice expressed his discontent over irregularities at the affidavit department of the Supreme Court. “We are not being able to stop irregularities even after installing CCTV cameras there. Now all are doing the affidavits outside the room,” he said during the hearing of a case.

He expressed the resentment after Attorney General Mahbubey Alam had informed a bench of the Appellate Division that a case was supposed to be at number three of the cause list, but was mysteriously kept as the 89th item.

Later, 31 officers of the affidavit division of Supreme Court were also transferred by the administration.
