The High Court on Tuesday cleared the way for the newly-appointed principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College (VNSC), Prof Fouzia Rezwana, to join her post.

The HC lifted its stay order on her joining to the post of principal and also issued a rule asking the government to explain within four weeks as to why the appointment of Prof Fouzia should not be declared illegal.

The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Khairul Alam passed the order and issued the rule after a hearing on a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akond, also a former member of the VNSC governing body, with the HC on Monday challenging the legality of Prof Fouzia’s appointment.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said, “With the HC order, there is no bar for Fouzia Rezwana to join her post at Viqarunnisa Noon School and College.”
