HC issued split verdict
The High Court on August 27 issued a split verdict on a petition filed seeking its directives on the government to immediately start the admission process at medical and dental colleges by holding a test.

NHRC will file writ to find case against Limon
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) will file a petition on September 02 with the High Court demanding a judicial probe into the incidents involving Jhalkathi college student Limon Hossain who was maimed by Rab last year. “I believe a judicial probe will find the cases filed against Limon false,” NHRC Chairman Prof Mizanur Rahman said. Once the judicial probe unearths the truth, NHRC would file a compensation case for him, he said, adding that the human rights body was always ready to provide full legal aid to Limon. The decision came when Limon came into limelight again following an attack on Limon, his mother and brother by a Rab source Ibrahim Hawlader in Jhalkathi on August 20 and murder charges were brought against him and his family members.- The Daily Star August 28 2012.
