Health Desk- 05 Jan 2020: The High Court (HC) on Sunday issued a rule asking the government to explain in four weeks why it should not be directed to appoint counsellors or clinical psychologists at all educational institutions across the country in order to develop students’ morality.

Chairman of University Grants Commission (UGC) and secretaries to the ministries of education, public administration, health and primary and mass education, and director general of Directorate of Education have been made respondents to the rule.

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman came up with the rule following a writ petition filed by Supreme Court lawyer Farhad Uddin Ahmed Bhuiyan seeking necessary order.

Drug addiction, sexual harassment, suicide, killing, personality crisis, instability and chaos are taking place at the academic institutions due to the moral degradation, the lawyer said in the petition.
