A writ was filed with the High Court seeking a directive to provide proper security to judges and courtrooms across the country.

Advocate Ishrat Hasan, a Supreme Court lawyer and the wife of a judge, filed the petition.

The writ was filed a day after a gruesome killing inside a courtroom of Cumilla.

The shocking incident took place on Monday in front of Judge Begum Fatema Ferdous of Cumilla Sessions Judge (third) court while the hearing in the murder case was going on, reports news agency UNB.

A hearing on the writ is likely to be held at the bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader on Wednesday.

Advocate Ishrat Hasan said, "As the wife of a judge, I'm worried at the grisly murder inside the courtroom and that's why I've filed a petition seeking a directive to provide security to all the judges and courtrooms across the country."
