HC slaps an injunction on Janata Bank written test results
The High Court slapped a three-month long injunction on Janata Bank written test results on Monday after a writ petition alleged the question paper was leaked. The injunction also includes any further proceedings for the recruitment of executive officer posts of Janata Bank. A High Court bench of Justice Zubayer Rahman Chowdhury and Justice Md Iqbal Kabir passed the order in response to a writ petition filed by 15 job seekers. The allegations of the question paper leak surfaced after the written test for the posts was held on April 21, arranged by Dhaka University's Social Sciences Faculty. Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua, lawyer of the petitioners, told Dhaka Tribune: “The job seekers filed the writ petition challenging the authorities' inaction to investigate the allegations of the question paper leak and their request to cancel the test.” The High Court in a ruling asked the authorities concerned to explain why their inaction to investigate the allegations and their failure to take action against the offenders should not be declared illegal. It also asked to know why the authorities should not be directed to cancel the recruitment process. Seven respondents including the finance secretary, law secretary, governor of Bangladesh Bank, vice chancellor of Dhaka University, dean of Faculty of Social Sciences of Dhaka University, president of Bangladesh Bankers' Selection Committee and managing director of Janata Bank have been asked to produce their answers to the rule by four weeks.
