Before taking his seat, the magistrate Assistant Commissioner (prosecution) Mockbul Hossain asked on duty policemen to place the accused Nizami in the dock, otherwise the magistrate would not take his seat.
Nizami’s lawyers protested this saying there were instances where the accused was allowed to sit on a chair during the hearing of a case.
