Abdur Rahman Badi, a former MP from Ukhia-Teknaf’s much-discussed government party, did not appear in court in the case filed by the 26-year-old, claiming his father.
The hearing was not held as the summons issued against Badir on the scheduled date of the case was not returned to the court on Thursday (January 14). However, Badir’s child claimant, the plaintiff in the case, Mohammad Ishaq of Kayukkhali Para of Teknaf Municipality was present in the court today.
A young man named Mohammad Ishaq, who looks almost exactly like Badir, appeared in court on Sunday, December 13 and claimed that Badi’s father had filed a case in the Teknaf Assistant Judge’s Court. He also applied for a ‘father-son’ DNA test to confirm his paternity. The court took cognizance of the allegation and ordered the defendants, including the main defendant Abdur Rahman Badi, to appear in person on January 14 and testify.
However, the hearing was not held today (Thursday, January 14) as the summons issued against Badir on the due date of the case was not returned to the court, said Kafil Uddin Chowdhury, lawyer of Badir’s son Mohammad Ishaq.
He said the summons issued in the case filed against Abdur Rahman Badi claiming to be his father did not return to the court. Badi, the main accused in the case, also did not appear in court. So the hearing was not held.
He further said that since the summons was not returned, the accused got time. The next decision of the court will be known after the return of the issued summons.
In addition to Badi, the main defendant in the case is Badir’s uncle Haji Mohammad Islam, the municipal mayor of Teknaf.
