The appointment letter says the new vice-chancellor, as the chief executive officer of the university, will be staying at the university compound round the clock.

The president appointed professor Nazmul Ahsan Kalimullah, a teacher of public administration at Dhaka University, as the BRU vice-chancellor on 1 June 2017.

A group of BRU teachers waged movements protesting against irregularities including long-time absence of Nazmul Ahsan Kalimullah at the university compound.

The University Grants Commission formed two probe bodies to investigate irregularities by vice-chancellor Nazmul Ahsan Kalimullah and some other officials of BRU.
