The High Court issued a stay order on the government circular about admission to Viqarunnisa Noon School and College for the 2017-18 session.
The High Court has also issued a rule asking why the circular on college admission as per the HSC examination merit list will not be declared illegal.
A High Court bench comprising justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and justice AKM Zahirul Hoque gave the stay order. They also made four people including education secretary and chairman of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, respondents to the rule to be replied within four weeks.
The petitioner was Yunus Ali Akando and for the state there was deputy attorney general Aurobindo Kumar Roy.
Last Monday, another High Court bench stayed the same order for the Notre Dame College, Holy Cross College and Saint Joseph College in Dhaka.
