BCL is the student wing of ruling Awami League.

Vice-chancellor M Harun-Ur-Rashid Askari temporarily appointed Paresh Chandra Barman as the acting proctor replacing Mahbubar Rahman.

The decision was made at an emergency meeting of IU authorities around 11:00pm with VC Askari in the chair.

Prof Barman has been serving as the student counsellor. He will continue to work as the acting proctor until further notice, acting registrar SM Abdul Latif told UNB.

“We’ll appoint a permanent proctor in future,” the VC said.

Professor Rahman had joined as proctor on Saturday.

A day later, over a hundred Chhatra League activists protested on the campus demanding his resignation. The protesters called off the demonstration after professor Rahman resigned from his post.
