2 pvt universities fined for admitting extra students beyond approval
The Supreme Court today fined two private universities Tk 10 lakh each for admitting extra students beyond approval of Bangladesh Bar Council and University Grants Commission (UGC).
Stamford University Bangladesh and Dhaka International University, which admitted the students to their law faculties, have been ordered to give the money to the Liver Transplant Unit of the Birdem hospital in 15 days.
The Supreme Court, however, upheld the High Court order directing the Bangladesh Bar Council to allow the candidates who passed law from the two universities to fill up their forms and registration card so that they can appear for the Bar Council Enrolment Examination.
A three-member bench of the Appellate Division, headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order after hearing a petition filed by Bangladesh Bar Council challenging the High Court verdict.
