concerned to ensure providing necessary assistance including manpower and
logistic help in running mobile courts across the country.

Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order while holding hearing on a
matter of supplying certified copy of mobile court order to person convicted
by it within five working days.

magistrate Md Sarwar Alam to appear before it today and explained the matter.
