The High Court has issued a rule seeking to know why the failure of holding Carmichael College Student Union (CCSU) elections will not be illegal. At the same time, the Secretary of Education, Vice-Chancellor and Registrar of the National University and Principal and Vice-Principal of Carmichael College have been asked to respond to this rule within four weeks.

Following the preliminary hearing of the writ petition filed by the five students, a High Court bench comprising Justice M Inayetur Rahim and Justice Md Khairul Alam issued the rule on Tuesday. Barrister AH Imam Hasan heard the petition filed in the court.

The five students who applied for the writ are Osman Gani, Md. Abu Naeem Alif, Safayet Rahman, Md. Taha Yeasin Dipto, and Md. Sohail Rana Prince.

The writ petition states that the college which was established in 1961 currently has 25,000 students in HSC, Honors and Masters. No election has been held in the last 29 years. The CCSU elections were held in 1990 for the last time. But the fees are being charged from the students in the name of the Student Parliament.
