Newly-appointed Viqarunnisa principal’s joining stayed

The joining of newly appointed principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College Professor Fougia Rezwan has been stayed.

The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice MD Khairul Alam passed the order on Monday while hearing a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Eunus Ali Akond challenging Fougia’s appointment.

The court also asked Deputy Attorney General Amit Das Gupta to ensure that Fouzia does not join the post of the principal till 11:00am tomorrow.

Earlier in the morning, Eunus Ali Akond filed a plea mentioning that the governing body of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College is the authority to appoint its principal whereas the government has authority to appoint the teachers.

But the government has illegally appointed Fouzia as the principal of the institution on September 15 though it has no jurisdiction to do so as per relevant rules and regulations.
