Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (Sust) on Saturday expelled one student and suspended seven others for a semester over disciplinary issues.
The university syndicate in a meeting, chaired by Vice Chancellor Prof Farid Uddin Ahmed, took the decision, following recommendations from the disciplinary board, said syndicate member Dr Mohammed Mastabur Rahman.
All eight students are involved with the university unit of Chhatra League and hold different posts in the organisation.
Abdur Rashid Rasel, a student of social work department, has been expelled on charges of stabbing a student, Jahid Hasan Nayem, on March 25 last year.
Nayem is the university BCL unit’s organising secretary while Rasel is mass education affairs secretary, said sources.
Meanwhile, the other seven students were suspended for their involvement in an attack on Sust BCL unit’s joint secretary Rajib Sarkar on March 23 this year.
