Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology Teachers’ Association today issued a statement protesting an alleged attack on their fellow in Rajshahi city.
Prof SM Abdur Razzak, president of Ruet Teachers’ Association confirmed our Rajshahi staff correspondent that they issued a statement protesting an attack on their colleague Rashidul Islam, an assistant professor of the department of Electrical and Electric Engineering at the university.
Md Rashidul Islam broughtt the allegation of the attack through a social media post at 11pm on Saturday. In his Facebook post, which by now has gone viral, Rashidul said he was attacked by stalkers in Rajshahi after he protested the sexual harassment of his wife by them.
No one has lodged a complaint with the police so far regarding the incident, Nibaron Chandra Burman, officer-in-charge of Boalia Police Station told The Daily Star.
But a phone caller identifying himself as one of the teacher’s relatives told the police to look into the matter. Police visited the scene and looked into available close circuit camera footages.
“We found no witness or video evidence of the incident visiting the spot,” the OC said adding that the police is keeping a close eye on the incident
