The Supreme Court today fined 10 private medical colleges Tk 1 crore each for admitting 153 candidates who failed to fulfill the relevant requirements in admission tests.

The Appellate Division also ordered the DU authorities to give registration and admit card to the 153 medical students after receiving the fine so that they can appear in their first professional examinations.
