1 week time given by HC to get effective insecticide for Aedes mosquitoes

Dhaka, July 25 (BAN/ AD): Justice Tariq-ul-Hakim and Justice Md Shohrowardi from HC bench passed the order after the two officials, DSCC Chief Health Officer Brigadier General Md Sharif Ahmed and DNCC Chief Health Officer Brigadier General Md Mominur Rahman Mamun, appeared before it on Thursday.

HC noted that Aedes mosquitoes and the dengue virus are spreading on alarming rate, hence it ordered health officers of Dhaka North and South City Corporations to bring effective insecticides and gave them a week time.

HC on Monday had summoned the chief health officials as it was not pleased with the report filed about preventing mosquito-borne diseases.
