The High Court (HC) on Monday ordered the Ministry of Public Administration to give due benefits to 39 valiant freedom fighters (FFs) admin cadres of first BCS, who had been denied their promotions and other additional profits from 2001 to 2003.
A High Court division virtual bench of Justice Naima Haider and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil passed the order today, declaring absolute a rule issued earlier in this regard.
The court in its judgement said these petitioners, who went into retirement as joint secretaries and deputy secretaries as per concerned guideline, would get retrospective promotion and other benefits as per their service competence.
Advocate Reza-e-Rabbi Khandaker moved the plea for the petitioners, while deputy attorney general Amit Talukder stood for the state.
The court earlier issued the rule in 2013, after holding hearings on three separate writ petitions filed by these 39 deprived officials.
