IU suspends 2 BCL leaders over torture of student
Kushtia's Islamic University unit BCL suspended Sanjida Chowdhury and Tabassum Islam, who were accused of torturing a female student for staying at a student dormitory without informing them.
Faisal Siddique Arafat, president of IU unit BCL, confirmed the matter to The Daily Star yesterday.
Faisal said, "If they [Sanjida and Tabassum] are found guilty in the investigation, recommendations for action against them will be submitted to the central Bangladesh Chhatra League unit and the university administration."
Both Sanjida and Tabassum also left the university's Deshratna Sheikh Hasina Hall Thursday night, confirmed hall Provost Prof Shamsul Haque.
"We instructed the accused to leave the hall after we received the directives of the university administration verbally.
"No one in the dormitory is a resident student of the hall, they are allowed to live there as non-residents," he said.
Sanjida is a student of statistics and Tabassum is a student of the finance and banking department at IU.
