Staff Correspondent: A writ petition has been filed with the High Court challenging the legality of appointment of secondary and higher education directorate official Fougia Rezwan as the new principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College.

The writ petition sought a stay on the appointment of Fougia Rezwan as the principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College.

Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Eunus Ali Akond filed the writ petition on Monday.

A hearing on the writ may be held today in the HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Khairul Alam.

Advocate Eunus Ali Akond told the HC that: “The managing committee of an educational institution generally appoints principal of the institution as per the law. But the government has appointed the principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College in violation of the existing law. For this, I have filed the writ.”

The government yesterday appointed secondary and higher education directorate official Fougia Rezwan as the new principal of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College.

Fougia has been serving as the principal of Sabujbagh Government College.
