The High Court today ordered the government 'for the last time' to rename the streets and installations named after anti-liberation people within next 90 days.
A High Court bench comprising Justice Zubayer Rahman Chowdhury and Justice Ahmed Sohel passed the order today after hearing on a writ filed by Dhaka University professor and historian Dr Muntassir Mamun and journalist Shahriar Kabir in 2012.
The court also asked authorities concerned to rename those streets and installations after the freedom fighters of respective localities and to submit a compliance report within February 23.
On May 14, 2012, the High Court issued a ruling asking as to why it shall not pass order to rename such streets and installations.
But the order is yet to be implemented and that is why the court has allowed time to comply with the order for the last time, said Barrister AK Rashidul Haque, who moved the case for the petitioners.
Deputy attorney general Amit Das Gupta appeared for the state during the hearing.
