Talking to UNB, the IU VC said that action would be taken against the teacher after getting reports from the probe body.

The university authorities, however, removed Nasimuzzaman from his assistant proctor post over issuing death threat to the teacher on Tuesday.

On 1 January, Nasimuzzaman threatened and abused Altaf over planting trees at the teachers’ residential area. Altaf filed a general diary against Nasimuzzaman with the police station on that day.
