The High Court on Thursday dismissed  a rule issued upon a writ petition filed over appointing 1650 deputy assistant agriculture officers at the Department of Agricultural Extension.

A HC bench of Justice JBM Hasan and Razik-Al-Jalil passed the order during a final hearing on the rule issued in this regard..

Additional Attorney General Sheikh Mohammad Morshed said with this order the appointment process of those officers has become legal.

Barrister Rokon Udin Mahmud, advocate Prabir Niogi, Subrata Kumar Kundu and Salauddin Regan presented the petitioner’s side at the court while Additional Attorney General Sheikh Mohammad Morshed and Deputy Attorney General Tushar Kanti Ray stood for the state.

On January 23, 2018 a notification was published to appoint 1,650 deputy assistant agriculture officers.

On January 17, 2020 after written exam and viva voce the results for the job examination were published.

Thirty-four of the attendees at the viva exam sent a petition to the Director General of the Department of Agricultural Extension and the Agriculture secretary complaining of not following the quota system properly during the appointments.

Later Md Rashedul Islam and other candidates for the post filed a writ petition at the court after receiving no reply from the authorities.
