The High Court on Thursday issued a rule asking the government to explain why suspension of academic activities of three branches of Lakehead Grammar School in the capital would not be illegal.
A bench of Justice Syed Mohammad Dastagir Hossain and Justice Ataur Rahman Khan issued the rule after hearing three separate petitions in this regard.
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.
