BCL leader Imtiaz can stay at BUET hall: HC

The High Court (HC) today (April 8) stayed an order by BUET authorities to cancel the residency of the university’s student and BCL leader Imtiaz Hossain Rahim. 

The bench of Justice Md Khasruzzaman and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar Kajol issued a rule in this regard.

Imtiaz has told reporters he would reside on the campus after the Eid vacation. Previously, Imtiaz also secured an HC rule in his favour in a writ challenging BUET’s ban on student politics.

Advocate Shah Manjurul Haque moved in favour of Imtiaz on Monday’s hearing over the reinstatement of his residential status at BUET.

The lawyer later told reporters that BUET authorities cancelled Imtiaz’s residency because of the presence of BCL leaders on campus on the midnight of 28 March. However, the authorities failed to specify what Imtiaz’s crime was during the incident.

Furthermore, as per the common norms of justice, Imtiaz should had been allowed to explain his position through the issuance of a show cause notice by BUET officials.

BUET has decided to conduct a thorough probe into the incident of 28 March. The High Court has not proscribed investigations against Imtiaz over the incident. In the meantime, he can stay at his residential hall without any obstructions.

However, the court did raise concerns over potential tensions at BUET in the event of Imtiaz’s return to his residential hall. Advocate Manjurul has assured the justices that no untoward incident would result from the return of his client to BUET hall, the lawyer added.
