HC for ensuring quality of earthing rod

DHAKA- The High Court (HC) today ordered the people concerned to ensure quality of earthing or ground rod before using it in any installation.

The court also issued a rule asking officials as to why it shall not declare illegal the inaction of Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board (BREB) in ensuring quality earthing rod in different installations.

A High Court division bench comprising Justice Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and Justice Mohammad Ullah passed the order after holding hearing on a writ petition filed by an electrician named Mizan Miah.

The court asked five officials including power secretary to submit their explanation in this regard.
