The High Court (HC) issued a rule asking the government to explain within four weeks why they should not be directed to appoint 38 candidates who qualified under the 39th special Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examinations.
The HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader on Monday issued the rule following two separate writ petitions filed by the 38 deprived candidates challenging the legality of the government's decision to not appoint them.
Lawyer Siddique Ullah Miah appeared for the doctors while Deputy Attorney General ABM Abdullah Al Mahmud Bashar represented the state.
Siddique Ullah said the doctors passed the 39th special BCS examinations on April 30 in 2019.
“After that PSC had recommended the government to appoint 4792 successful candidates. However, Public Administration Ministry decided to appoint 4,629 candidates through three separate gazette notifications on November 18 and December 8 last year, and January 20 this year, depriving the 38 candidates without any reason”, he added.
Later, on aggrieved candidates--Md Abdullah Al Mamin, Rakibul Alam, Asif Iqbal, Farzana Naznin Mou, Anika Tabassum Ispita, Kawsar Ahmed, Sadia Afrin, Md. Nahid Azam Parag, Shayla Akter, Mohammed Ali Aftab, Md, Ibrahim Hossain and Hosne Ara Soniya-- filed two separate writ petitions challenging the legality of the government decision.
