The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Sunday fined Tk10 lakh each to the two private universities - Sylhet Metropolitan University and International Islamic University, Chittagong (IIUC). 

The universities were fined for enrolling more than 50 students in its LLB course, defying the decision of University Grants Commission (UGC). 

A bench of the Appellate Division, led by Justice Hasan Foyez Siddique, passed the order. Senior advocate Zainul Abedin and lawyer ABM Altaf Hossain stood for the Universities in the court while Advocate AY Mashiuzzaman represented the Bar Council. 

Earlier on Thursday, the court summoned the vice-chancellors of the two universities.
