Earlier on Wednesday, the court wanted to know the stance of Dhaka University (DU) student Mohiuddin Rony’s protest and about his six-point demand as he staged demonstrations at Kamalapur station from 7 July to 18 July in protest of the irregularities in Bangladesh Railway.

The High Court also wanted to know what steps the Anti-Corruption Commission had taken after the allegations made by Mohiuddin Rony.

Following the court's order, the railway authorities said that a probe body was formed to look into the allegations.

A letter of the probe body was also submitted to the court by deputy attorney general AKM Amin Uddin. Three officials of Bangladesh Railways were also present there.

The court also questioned the three staffers as to why there should be mismanagement in the railway sector? "Why should tickets be sold in the black market? Why are people forced to travel on the roof of a train?"

Rony staged a one-man protest against corruption in the country's rail administration for 13 days till Tuesday.

The Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection (DNCRP) on Wednesday fined Shohoz.com, an online ticketing platform of the country, Tk 200,000 after finding evidence of mismanagement in selling tickets of Bangladesh Railways.

As per the decision of DNCRP, Roni will get 25 per cent of this penalty (Tk 50,000).
