Slack security, Sust VC says over attack on Zafar Iqbal

There was slack in security provided to Prof Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, Shahjalal University’s Vice Chancellor AKM Farid Uddin said today reflecting on the knife attack on the eminent educationist.

"If it happened to him (Prof Zafar Iqbal), then where is our security? The security measure given to him was thin and it has been proved through the attack," he said at a press conference.

The VC of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (Sust) was speaking this evening in reflection to Home Minister Asaduzzaman Mia’s claim of no lapse in security given to Prof Zafar Iqbal.
