Online Desk : The High Court (HC) on Thursday summarily rejected a writ petition filed challenging the legality of virtually running the courts across the country.
The HC bench of Justice Jahangir Hossain Selim and Justice M Badruzzaman passed the rejection order after holding the hearing.
State counsel deputy attorney general Dr M Bashir Ullah said, "In the coronavirus pandemic, virtual functions of the courts are being run in many countries including neighbouring India. So, issuing a rule in this regard is not necessary. The court, then summarily rejected the writ petition."
Lawyer AKM Asiful Huda submitted the writ petition last month challenging the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act 2020 in court proceedings.
