4 JnU students suspended for 'harassing' female peer
The Jagannath University authority yesterday suspended its four students for allegedly harassing a female student.
The suspended students are Atikur Rahman, Abu Sufian, Sazida Parveen of management studies and Sadia Islam of Islamic history and culture. They all are fourth-year students.
The decision of suspension was taken as the allegation was primarily proved true after talking with the victim and the accused, university Proctor Noor Mohammad told The Daily Star.
The complaint was sent to the university's sexual abuse prevention cell for further investigation, he said.
According to the complaint, Sazida locked into an altercation with the victim -- a student of music and drama and a journalist at a Radio station -- over grabbing a seat in the university bus a month ago. Following the altercation Sazida with three others harassed and slapped her in front of the new academic building on Monday.
