SC stays HC order for reopening Lakehead Grammar School

Staff Reporter |

The Appellate Division on Wednesday stayed until Sunday the High Court order that asked the government to reopen Lakehead Grammar School in the capital, which was closed on the allegation of extremism link.

Appellate Division chamber judge Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain also fixed November 19 for hearing the matter by its regular court.

The chamber judge passed the order after hearing a government appeal challenging the High Court verdict that had declared illegal the closure of the school by the education ministry on November 6.

Earlier, the High Court on Tuesday ordered to reopen all the branches of Lakehead Grammar School within 24 hours following a rule asking the government to explain why suspension of academic activities of three branches of the school would not be declared illegal.

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.

On November 6, the government suspended the academic functions of Lakehead Grammar School at Dhanmondi branch and two other branches at Gulshan on charges of patronising religious extremism.

According to the education ministry, the school was running without approval from the ministry.
