A female student of Jahangirnagar University in a written complaint alleged that she was sexually harassed by a male student of her department.
She submitted the complaint to JU Vice Chancellor Prof Farzana Islam yesterday.
In her complaint, she said the youth told her to meet at a lab of the department on July 15 last year. When she went there the youth sexually harassed her.
He also warned her not to disclose the incident. Later on, the youth harassed her physically and mentally several times on the campus, she mentioned in the complaint.
On Wednesday, she informed her friends of the matter after the youth sent her a love proposal with the help of a junior student and stalked her during the rehearsal of a play on Sunday.
The youth, however, denied all the allegations except for the proposal. According to him, he did it "out of fun".
He also alleged that he proposed her and being refused she is making those false allegations against him.
He will submit a written complaint against her, said the youth.
JU Proctor Prof Tapan Kumar Saha said the university authorities will take steps after investigating the incident.
