A writ petition was filed with the High Court challenging the legality of the process of reappointing Taqsem A Khan as managing director of Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (Wasa).
Lawyer Tanvir Ahmed filed the petition on behalf of engineer Khandaker Monjur Morshed, a resident of Dhaka South City Corporation.
The petition also sought a HC rule asking the authorities concerned why the decision of the board of Dhaka Wasa to reappoint Taqsem A Khan as MD would not be declared illegal.
Four people including secretary to Local Government, Rural Development and Co-operatives Ministry, additional secretary (water supply) and managing director of Dhaka Wasa have been made respondents to the writ.
The HC may hear the petition next week, said the lawyer.
