DHAKA : The High Court today dismissed an appeal by rights group Odhikar’s director ASM Nasiruddin Elan and secretary Adilur Rahman Khan against the charge framing order against them in a case lodged under information, communication and technology act.

“A High Court division bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim passed the order after holding hearing on the plea,” a court official said.

A Dhaka court on January 8, 2014 framed charges in the case against the duo for distorting facts about the law enforcing agencies drive over the Hefajat mayhem in capital’s Motijheel area on May 5, 2013.

The controversial rights group while making a report over the drive resorted to blatant lies and incorporated Photoshop images from around the world. The report even showed people still alive and doing well, as dead.
