Medical Admission : HC stays govt’s mark deduction decision

DHAKA : The High Court on Tuesday stayed an order on the government’s decision to deduct five marks for second time medical admission seekers, reports UNB.
The HC bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Jahangir Hossain passed the order.
Besides, the court also issued a rule asking the authorities concerned why the government’s decision to deduct marks from second time admission seekers would not be declared as ‘illegal’ and ‘unlawful’.
Health Secretary, director general of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), and four others have been asked to reply the rule within four weeks.
The HC on Monday set yesterday to deliver the order on the government’s decision after hearing of the writ. Advocate Eunus Ali Akond filed the petition with the HC on August 27 against the government’s ‘discriminatory’ decision.
