The conditions are contradictory with Article 29 and 32 of the constitution

The High Court has issued a rule asking why the conditions of being unmarried and from respectable parentage should not be declared unconstitutional in the direct appointment of police sub-inspectors (SIs).

A High Court bench led by Justice Moinul Islam Chowdhury issued the rule on Sunday.

The secretaries of the Law and Home Ministries, inspector general of police (IGP), and other officials concerned were made respondents to the rule. 

Earlier on February 25, Khilgaon resident Hossain Khan filed the writ challenging the conditions with the High Court.

Lawyer Ishrat Hasan argued for the writ petition.

Ishrat said: “According to clause 741 of the Police Regulations, 1943, candidates applying for the post of SI must be from respectable parentage. In a sub-clause, it also mentions that the candidate should be unmarried and must remain unmarried till the end of his training period.

“Because of these conditions, the writ petitioner cannot apply for the post of SI even though he has educational qualifications required. Also, these conditions are contradictory with Article 29 and 32 of the constitution,” she added.
