Md. Mohiuddin and others Vs Md. Motiur Rahman and another, 17BLD(AD)193
The Act does not provide for any consequence for failure of the trial Court to conclude the trial within one hundred and twenty days. The legislature having not provided for any penal provision in case of failure of the trial Court to conclude the trial within the fixed period does not result in any penal consequence. This limitation of time for disposal of cases is merely directory and not mandatory in nature.
