DU Teacher’s Termination

HC questions legality

The High Court on Tuesday asked the Dhaka University authorities to explain in four weeks why its decision to terminate Professor Morshed Hasan Khan from his job should not be declared illegal, reports UNB.

 The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Sardar Md Rashed Jahangir issued the rule on Wednesday following a writ petition filed by Prof Morshed, a teacher at the marketing department.

 Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua stood for the writ while Deputy Attorney General Arvind Kumar Roy represented the state.

 Earlier last year, the university sacked Prof. Morshed on charges of distorting the country's history and defaming Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
