The High Court rejected a writ petition seeking an immediate investigation into leaked telephonic conversations.

An HC bench of justices M Enayetur Rahim and Md Mostafizur Rahman dismissed the petition on Wednesday, after a hearing.

Advocate Mohamamd Shishir Monir appeared for the petitioner in the court while Deputy Attorney General Bipul Bagmar represented the state and advocate Khandaker Reza-e-Rakib for the Bangladesh Telecommunication and Regulatory Commission (BTRC).

On August 10, a group of 10 Supreme Court lawyers filed a writ petition in the High Court seeking a probe into leaked telephonic conversations.

Posts and Telecommunications department Secretary, Information and Communications department Secretary, Telecommunications and Information Technology Secretary, and Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission chairman were made respondents to the petition.
