The High Court (HC) on Tuesday issued a rule seeking explanation as to why the final test results of assistant teacher recruitment to government primary schools should not be declared illegal.
The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman issued the rule after hearing a writ petition.
Advocate Md Kamal Hossain stood for the petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukdar represented the state.
Secretary to the Primary and Mass Education Ministry, Director General of Primary Education Directorate and others concerned were asked to respond to the rule within 10 days.
Kamal Hossain said as per the Primary School Teacher Recruitment Rules 2013, the vacant posts must be filled with 60 percent women candidates, 20 percent dependents and the remaining 20 percent male candidates.
Sixteen candidates filed the writ as the recruitment test results published on December 24 did not follow the rules.
