CU teacher accused of sexual harassment
The Institute of Forest and Environmental Science of Chittagong University (CU) formed a fact-finding committee yesterday following an allegation of sexual harassment against one of its teacher.
The three-member committee is headed by Prof Gias Uddin Ahmed, said the institute's Director Prof Md Danesh Miah. It has been asked to submit the report as early as possible.
He said one of the institute's students filed the complaint a few days ago. “So far, we have got three such complaints against the teacher,” he said.
The teacher decided to refrain from all academic activities till submission of the report, Prof Danesh added.
Meanwhile, demanding termination of the teacher, the students of the institute yesterday submitted a memorandum to its director.
Contacted, the teacher termed the allegation false. He said a vested quarter instigated the students against him.
He said he will organise a press conference soon in this regard.
