A writ petition was filed on Thursday at the High Court, seeking its direction to immediately reopen educational institutions, which remain close amid the global coronavirus pandemic situation.
Abdul Kaiyum Sarkar, Principal of Bhawal Mirzapur Public School & College in Gazipur, filed the writ, making six officials including education secretary respondents.
‘A High Court division bench of Justice Md Khosruzzaman and Justice Md Mahmud Hasan Talukder may hear the petition next week,’ petitioner’s lawyer Faruk Alamgir Chowdhury told newsmen.
The lawyer said they sent legal notice on January 11 to the concerned officials to take necessary steps to reopen educational institutions. As they did not get any reply to the notice, they filed the writ.
