A writ petition is being filed in the High Court on Monday seeking compensation of Tk 50 lakh for the families of those killed in the mosque blast.
Supreme Court lawyer Taimur Alam Khandkar, a resident of Narayanganj, is applying for this writ.
In the writ application, the lawyer said that action is being taken against those responsible in the incident and instructions for regular monitoring of gas lines are sought.
37 worshipers were burnt to death in an explosion at Baytus Salat Jame Mosque in West Talla area of Narayanganj city at around 8:30 pm on Friday, September 4. They were admitted to the Sheikh Hasina National Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit.
There have been reports of 24 deaths so far. The condition of 13 burnt people under treatment is critical.
Justice JBM Hasan and Justice Md. Khairul Alam brought to the notice of the High Court Bench. He appealed for a compensation of Tk 50 lakh for each family of the deceased and issuance of suo motu directions to take action against those responsible.
However, the court advised the lawyer to make a written application (writ application) instead of giving a spontaneous order.
The lawyer said that the writ application will be filed tomorrow (Monday). This application will be presented to the High Court bench (bench led by Justice JBM Hasan).
