The High Court (HC) summoned on Wednesday three lawyers, including the president of Nilphamari Bar Association, for indecent behaviour with a judge inside a courtroom in Nilphamari, reports UNB.

They were asked to appear before the court on February 14 to explain the allegation of misconduct.

The HC bench of Justice JBM Hassan and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil passed the order following a written complaint by Golam Sarowar, a judge of Nilphamari Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-1.

Those summoned are Nilphamari Bar Association president Advocate Md Momtazul Haque, Advocate Md Azharul Islam and Advocate Ferdous Alam.

Besides, the court issued a rule asking why punitive action should not be taken against them on contempt of court charge.

Judge Golam Sarowar of Nilphamari Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-1 on November 29 sent a written complaint to the HC to take action against those involved in it.

The registrar general produced the letter before the Chief Justice on December 29 and the HC bench was designated by him to dispose of the matter.

According to the complaint, the three lawyers indecently asked the judge to leave the courtroom after he delivered a judgment on November 28. They also hurled abusive words at the court, as per the complaint.
