 The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has postponed the verdict of the High Court to nationalize the jobs of 47,000 village police officers in charge across the country.  A virtual bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order yesterday.  Former law minister Advocate Abdul Matin Khasru took part in the hearing on behalf of the village police in the court. He was accompanied by Barrister Humayun Kabir Pallab. Earlier, in 2017, 355 village policemen filed a writ petition seeking directions in the national pay scale.
 In this context, the High Court directed the government to include Mohalladars and Dofadars of the village police to 20th and 19th grades respectively of the national time scale and to pay their due salaries and allowances as per the time scale since June 2, 2011, reports thedailystar.net.
Delivering verdict on a writ petition, the court ordered the LGRD secretary to submit a report to this court after complying with the directive before the Mujib Borsho.
