Barisal Vet Instt reopens Nov 5

Barisal Veterinary Institute under Patuakhali University of Science and Technology (PSTU) will reopen on November 5, around two months after its closure on September 2 following widespread agitation by students on the campus.
PSTU Vice Chancellor Dr Syed Shakhawat Hossain said the academic council took the decision at a meeting here on October 24.
It also decided to deploy police on the campus. Two male dormitories and one female dormitory will be opened on November 2.
The institute was closed sine die after its students mounted an agitation programme demanding restoration of their internship for one year and scrapping the changes in the curriculum by the authorities.
PSTU Registrar Dr Nirmal Chandra told The Daily Star that actions against the students and teachers were taken according to the decision of the academic council meeting on September 27 after reviewing the report of the probe committee headed by Prof Nizamuddin Ahmed.
The academic council expelled six students for one semester, served show cause notices on 10 students and made two teachers of the institute OSDs (officers on special duty).
The expelled students are Palash Kumar, ABM Mustafa Kamal, Kamrul Hassan, Md Shaifuddin, Abu Bakar Siddik and Fakrul Islam Sarkar.
Ten students of different semesters were asked to explain why they would not be expelled for their involvement in creating chaos on the institute campus. But the matter was not solved at the latest meeting.
On the other hand, Associate Prof Abdul Matin of Dairy and Poultry Science department and Associate Prof Anisur Rahman of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery department have been made OSDs and closed to PSTU for “instigating” into the incident.
