'Cancel medical admission test'

19 September,2015

RTNN News Desk: A Supreme Court lawyer has sent a legal notice to the government seeking cancellation of medical and dental colleges’ admission test.

The notice had been sent to the secretaries to the Cabinet Division, and the ministries of law and education, said lawyer Younus Ali Akhand.

The question paper on which the test was held on Friday, matched with leaked questions, he told bdnews24.com.

As per the legal notice, the test should be cancelled within 24 hours or else a petition would be filed with the High Court.

“It also demanded proper investigation into the leak and fresh admission test,” Akhand said.

Four persons, including a doctor and a teacher of a coaching centre, were arrested from Dhaka on Tuesday for their suspected involvement in leaking question paper.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) had told the media the following day that Tk 38,000 in cash and bank cheques worth Tk 12 million were found on them.

“They have admitted conning students for long,” the elite police unit’s spokesperson Mufti Mahmud Khan told the media.

Bangladesh currently has 39 public medical and dental colleges and 98 private medical and dental colleges.

A total of 87,784 students took the admission tests on Friday against 11,099 seats for the MBBS and BDS courses in these colleges.

Of them, the public colleges have only 3,744 seats while private colleges have 7,355 seats.
