The Health Ministry on August 4 asked the Home Ministry to take prior approval and coordinate with the Health Ministry before conducting any raid

A writ has been filed with the High Court challenging a circular that asked law enforcement agencies not to conduct any raid at hospitals without ministry's approval.

Supreme Court lawyer Yadia Zaman and Hasan Tarek Polash filled the writ On Tuesday on behalf of another lawyer Rafiqul Islam. 

Secretaries of Home Ministry, Ministry of Health and Family welfare, Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary affairs and director general of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) were made the respondents for the writ petition.

The Health Ministry on August 4 asked the Home Ministry to take prior approval and coordinate with the Health Ministry before conducting any raid, as the raids are “disrupting healthcare.” 

The directive comes at a time when law enforcement is unmasking irregularities in testing and treatment involving Covid-19 in Bangladesh
