A minister’s phone call during a hearing at the High Court on Monday on a civil revision case over Jamuna Bank loan prompted the bench to withdraw it from the court proceedings as he apparently tried to influence it. “During the hearing, a minister made a phone call for which we’re not willing to hear the case anymore. Now the case has been posted to the Chief Justice for further order,” said the HC order before rising from the bench. The HC order, however, did not mention the name of the minister who made the phone call. The hearing got stalled halfway when the phone call landed before the HC division bench comprising Justice Sharif Uddin Chaklader and Justice AKM Shahidul Haque . Advocate Asaduzzaman, a counsel for one of the parties, said the case was earlier heard in part before the division bench headed by Justice Sharif Uddin Chaklader . Deputy attorney general Shasanka Shekhor Sarker, attached with the bench, declined to make any comment on the matter.
