The authorities of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) have expelled nine students for life from its dormitories on charges of ragging fellows.
BUET’s Directorate of Students’ Welfare director and Board of Residence and Discipline member secretary Mizanur Rahman came up with the decision of the authorities in a press conference on Thursday.
Six of them were the residents of Ahsan Ullah Hall. They are Sabyasachi Das, Soumitra Lahiri, Planbon Chowdhury, Nahid Ahmed, Arnob Chowdhury and Farhad Hossain.
Also, four other students of the hall on Thursday were warned of their activities in future. They are Tasnim Farhan, Lokman Hossain, Shafakat Bin Zafar and Tanzin Rashid Abir.
Three others were the residents of Suhrawardy Hall. They are Md Mobassher Hossain, ASM Mahadi Hassan, and Akib Hassan Rafin.
Besides, 17 other students of Suhrawardy Hall were expelled for different terms and warned of their activities.
Following the death of Abrar Fahad, a second-year student of electrical and electronic engineering (EEE), the protesting students of BUET placed a three-point of demand to resume academic activities.
One of the demands was ‘ensuring justice in other incidents of ragging on the campus.’
Mizanur Rahman told the press briefing that they had obtained a probe report over the ragging. The students were expelled on the basis of the report.
He called on the protesting students to resume the academic activities of BUET.
