The High Court has issued a rule asking the government to explain why suspension of academic activities of three branches of Lakehead Grammar School in Dhaka should not be declared illegal.
A bench of Justice Syed Mohammad Dastagir Hossain and Justice Ataur Rahman Khan issued the rule after hearing three separate petitions over this on Thursday.
Barrister Rashna Imam filed three writ petitions on behalf of Khaled Hasan Matin, new owner of the school and guardians of 12 students of the school.
Earlier on November 6, the government suspended the functions of Lakehead Grammar School- Dhanmondi branch and two other branches at Gulshan on charges of patronizing militancy and religious extremism.
The Education Ministry had said in a release that the school was operating without ministry approval.
