SC stays order against mark deduction for 2nd time medical admission seekers

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court today stayed a High Court order against a government decision to deduct five marks from the total obtained by second time admission seekers in medical and dental colleges. Justice Hasan Foez Siddique of the Appellate Division Chamber Judge Court passed the order, sending the matter to be heard at the apex court full bench on October 3.

The Appellate Division passed the order, accepting a state appeal against the High Court order of September 12. 

The High Court on that day had stayed the government decision to deduct five marks from the total obtained by second time admission seekers in medical and dental colleges.

A High Court vacation bench comprising Justice M. Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md. Jahangir Hossain passed the order, issuing a rule, asking authorities concerned to explain in four weeks as to why it shall not declare government decision illegal. 

The court asked five officials including health secretary, director general of Directorate General of Health Services (DGSH), and vice chancellor of Dhaka University to submit their explanations within the stipulated time. 

Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Eunus Ali Akond filed a writ petition in this regard on August 27 and today took part in the hearing on the matter as well.
