A member of the board of trustees and a lecturer of the law department of the private university of Sylhet have been accused of threatening and insulting the vice-chancellor Kazi Azizul Mawla of the leading university in Sylhet. The vice-chancellor filed a general diary with the police on such charges.
Meanwhile, the UGC has banned the two accused from entering the university campus. However, the lecturer Rezaul Karim took classes in the university on Wednesday, defying the ban of UGC.
Vice-Chancellor Kazi Azizul Mawla alleged that Dewan Sakib Ahmed, a member of the University’s Board of Trustees, and Rezaul Karim, a lecturer of the Law Department, entered his office around 5 pm on Sunday. At that time they abused him (Vice-Chancellor) and threatened to kill him. At one stage, the lecturer Rezaul Karim threw the ceramic mug on the table at the Vice-Chancellor. It got hurt in his (vice chancellor’s) hand. At that time, they also threatened that if the vice-chancellor did not voluntarily resign from the campus, ‘the body will be taken out’.
According to the vice-chancellor, the two accused attacked him on the orders of the treasurer of the university, Banamali Bhowmik.
However, denying such allegations, lecturer Rezaul said, ‘The allegations of threats or insults are completely false and baseless. Moreover, I have not received any kind of notice from UGC.’
