Advocate ASM Mejbah Uddin, lawyer of DU, said.
Earlier on October14, 2014, the DU authorities decided to allow only fresh successful HSC examinees to appear at its admission tests in a single year from the 2015-16 academic session, aiming to create an equal opportunity for all the aspirants.
A total of 16 guardians filed the writ petition with the HC earlier in the day challenging the legality of the decision.
On March 16, the HC issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain why the decision not to allow students to sit for the DU admission test for the second time would not be declared illegal. – unb
