A four-member bench, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, issued the order on Thursday. This after Shahidul’s lawyer said the High Court is set to hear a petition that was filed to challenge the remand order against Shahidul.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam represented the state during the hearing.

A High Court bench of Justice Syed Muhammad Dastagir Husain and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir will hear the petition around 2pm.

Earlier in the morning, the BSMMU Hospital authorities submitted a report on the famed photographer’s health condition to the High Court.
