Rajshahi University authorities have suspended a student from the law department for allegedly harassing a professor from the same department.

An order from the office, signed by the RU overseer, Professor Ashabul Haque, was issued in this regard this afternoon (June 29, 2022), reports our RU correspondent.

Master’s student Ashik Ullah was a resident of Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Hall, the office order said.

Speaking to our RU correspondent, Prof Proctor Ashabul Haque said Ashik has been violating academic discipline for a long time. Previously, he had behaved badly and allegedly threatened his teacher and classmates with death. Moreover, he harassed Professor Begum Asma Siddiqua in the premises of the department this morning.

“Thus, the authority has decided to suspend Ashik Ullah, following a verbal order from the Vice Chancellor,” Prof. Ashabul added.

The disciplinary committee will take further action after investigation, he said.

Mentionably, earlier in the morning, students from the UK Law Department protested and demanded that Ashik be expelled.
