Staff Correspondent: The High Court has directed the government to monitor the fruit markets and warehouses across the country to prevent use of chemicals in fruits.

A High Court bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order after hearing a petition on Monday.

The court asked the inspector general of police, director general of Rapid Action Battalion and chairman and director concerned of Bangladesh Standards Testing Institute (BSTI) to form separate teams in seven days.

The High Court also directed them to submit reports before this court after complying with the order by June 18.

Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh filed the petition.
