Contempt plea against DU VC

Staff Reporter

A contempt of court petition was filed before the High Court (HC) yesterday (Wednesday) against the Dhaka University vice-chancellor (DU VC), proctor and treasurer for not complying with its directive over holding the Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) election.

Advocate Manzill Murshid filed the petition on behalf of 15 former DU students. It sought rule against Dhaka University VC Md Akhtaruzzaman, proctor AKM Golam Rabbani and treasurer Kamal Uddin to explain why they should not be punished for violating its directive.

A vacation bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam is likely to hold a hearing on the petition on Sunday, Manzill Murshid told reporters.

On January 17, the HC directed the three to hold the DUCSU election within six months.

On September 4, since the DU authorities did not hold the election within the deadline, the former DU students, through Manzill Murshid, sent a legal notice to the VC, proctor and the treasurer for taking steps to hold the DUCSU election within seven days.

The VC of DU recently replied to the legal notice, denying the allegation of having committed contempt of court, Manzill Murshid said.

On January 17, the HC bench of Justice Syed Muhammad Dastagir Husain and Justice Md Ataur Rahman Khan asked the DU authorities to take steps for holding the DUCSU polls at a "suitable time, preferably within six months".

The bench had also asked the home ministry to maintain law and order during the DUCSU polls.

The bench had observed that the legitimate expectations of DU students to cast their votes had been violated by not holding DUCSU elections since 1990, though the Dhaka University Order 1973 required holding the election every year.

The court also said that the DU Senate cannot be formed properly without five elected representatives of the DUCSU. The Senate has been formed without the five DUSCU representatives for long, it maintained.

The court pronounced the verdict after hearing a writ petition, jointly filed by 25 Dhaka University students in April 2012.
