Dhaka, Nov 28: The High Court (HC) on Sunday issued a rule asking authorities concerned to explain in three weeks as to why it shall not pass an order to form a commission to probe different allegations against police and other law enforcing agencies.

A High Court division bench comprising Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah and Justice Md Kamrul Hossain Mollah passed the order after holding a hearing on a writ filed in this regard.
