Mirajul Moin Joy

The High Court (HC) today asked authorities concerned to inform it by Thursday that how long it will take to bring effective and proper mosquito repellent.

Justice Tariq ul Hakim and Justice Md Shohrowardi said these while holding further hearing on a rule it had issued suo moto.

Chief health officers Dhaka North and South City Corporations on July 25 had informed the court about conducting coordinated drives to eliminate Aedes mosquitoes in the capital and the court had fixed today for holding further hearing on the matter.

Earlier on July 14, the High Court had asked the two city corporations to take steps within 24-hour to eradicate Aedes mosquitoes in the capital. The court had also ordered them to take preventive measures to stop the spread of dengue and chikungunya in the city.

The court in its suo moto order at that time had asked to submit a report in this regard by July 22.
