The court granted a three-day remand to Khandkar Mozammel Haque Jani, Bench Assistant (Peshkar) of Metropolitan Magistrate Court-9 of Dhaka in the case of forgery of judge’s order.

Police produced him in court on Thursday (July 4). After that, Sub-Inspector Suman Chandra Sarkar of Kotwali Police Station, investigating officer of the case, applied for a five-day remand for the sake of proper investigation of the case. The lawyer of the accused asked for cancellation of remand and bail. After the hearing of both parties, Metropolitan Magistrate of Dhaka. Mehdi Hassan rejected the bail application of the accused and granted a three-day remand.

On Wednesday (July 3), Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury’s court ordered the arrest of Khandkar Mozammel Haque Johnny, and the Kotwali police station arrested him.

Then the court stenographer said. Noore Alam became the plaintiff and filed a case against him at the capital’s Kotwali police station.

According to the statement of the case, the accused Johnny recorded two different orders on March 9 and March 21 in 2022 in a case of Sherebangla Nagar police station. Where the signature is not that of the learned Judge in charge of the Court concerned. In the order published on March 21, 2022 in that case, accused Ahiduzzaman was ordered to be released by suspending the proceedings of the case according to section 249 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898.

The document of the order was not signed by the judge in charge of the concerned court and the order was written by bench assistant Khandkar Mozammel Haque, it is clear that he forged the signature of the judge and published the order in the absence of the judge in defiance of his duties as a bench assistant.

It is also known from the complaint of the case that on March 3, 2024, when a case of Jatrabari police station was sent to the judge’s court for trial and settlement on the orders of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, the accused recorded the order of giving probation to Nasir Uddin and Ashiqur Rahman in the case list and court diary on April 4, 2024, without the judge’s presence. .

However, the judge did not issue any such order. The document was not even presented to the judge for hearing. It appears that the accused committed such heinous crime for financial gain.

On June 30, when the defendant Johnny was ordered to give a written explanation, he responded by unconditionally apologizing on July 1 and showing reasons. It is also clear from his written explanation that he committed these heinous crimes for financial gain, which are against the service rules and disciplinary rules.
