The High Court has given the directive that plaintiffs or complainants have to submit copies of their national identity (NID) cards while filing any case with a police station or court against someone from now on.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Mostafizur Rahman passed the order on Monday.
The order came after the hearing of a writ petition filed by Ekramul Ahsan Kanchan, a resident of Shantinagar in the capital, to find the plaintiffs of 49 'fake' cases filed against him.
The High Court also directed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Police to find out the plaintiffs in the 49 cases. The CID has been asked to investigate into it and submit a report within the next 60 days.
Senior advocate Zainul Abedin and advocate Emadul Haque Basir appeared for the writ petition. Deputy Attorney General Bipul Bagmar represented the state.
