UNB: Md Mahabubur Rahman, the publisher of Adarsha Prakashani, Thursday challenged the Bangla Academy’s decision to deny him a stall at the Amar Ekushey Book Fair 2023 in a writ filed at the High Court.
Four people, including the director general of the Bangla Academy, were made defendants in the writ, the petitioner’s lawyer Aneek R Haque said. “The hearing on the writ petition is likely to be held next week.”
