The court suggested the writ petitioner’s lawyer to appeal for hearing it in another bench

A High Court bench on Tuesday felt embarrassed to hear a writ petition filed by Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury on grounds that he earlier praised one of its judges in a public speech.

Dr Zafrullah filed the writ seeking an increase of seats at his Gonoshasthaya Samaj Vittik Medical College before the High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Md Mostafizur Rahman.

In a speech in front of the National Press Club on September 11 Dr Zafrullah criticized former chief justice ABM Kharul Haque and praised the High Court Justice M Enayetur Rahim. 

In expressing to hear the writ the bench observed that a decision from this bench might get questioned.

The court suggested the writ petitioner’s lawyer to appeal for hearing it in another bench.

Barrister Fakhrul Islam presented the petitioner’s side at the court while Deputy Attorney General Bipul Bagmar stood for the state.

Gonoshasthaya Medical College had been allowed by Dhaka University to admit 110 students a year, but in 2021 the university lowered the number to 50.

Following an appeal in this regard the number of seats was increased to 60.

Later Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Dr Zafrullah filed a writ petition challenging the decision.
