The Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology of Dhaka University yesterday relieved a female teacher of all kinds of academic duties for her alleged moral degradation.
The decision of relieving the lecturer for one year was taken in an academic meeting of the department on Tuesday, said Prof Mehtab Khanam, its chairperson.
On last Saturday, she was found locked at the office of Prof Akib Ul Haque of psychology department. She was later rescued by the university authorities.
Prof Akib's wife the next day submitted written complaints to DU vice chancellor and chairperson of educational and counselling psychology department, demanding punishment for the duo. The department took the decision after she was found guilty in the investigation.
The decision about Prof Akib will be taken today, said Prof Nasreen Wadud, chairperson of psychology department.
