A High Court bench may hear the petition on Thursday

A writ petition has been filed with the High Court seeking its directives to restrict the sales of antibiotics at pharmacies without a physician’s prescription.

Barrister Sayedul Haque Suman submitted the petition as a public interest litigation on Wednesday—annexing a report of The Telegraph with the writ petition—seeking necessary orders.

The writ also sought a ruling to explain why the sale of antibiotics without prescription should not be declared illegal.

The health secretary, public administration secretary, director general of department of Health Services, and deputy commissioners of all 64 districts, have been made respondents to the writ. 

Barrister Suman told Dhaka Tribune that a High Court bench of Justice Sheikh Hasan Arif and Rajik Al Jalil may hear the petition on Thursday.

On April 22, British newspaper The Telegraph published a report with headline “Superbugs linked to eight out of 10 deaths in Bangladeshi ICUs”.
