Students demonstrate for holding final exams
Students of Life Science School of Khulna University demonstrated on Monday demanding some teachers restart academic activities and hold final examinations as a few teachers have been boycotting academic activities.
They locked the administration building and the main gate of the campus. They also blockaded the Khulna-Satkhira highway for about 8 hours. The students withdrew following assurance from the VC who said that he will hold a meeting with the disciplinary heads today to solve the problem.
Under the banner of “Sacheton Teachers of KU”, some teachers of the school have been protesting the appointment of Prof Samir Kumar Sadhu as the dean of Life Science School. They boycotted the final examinations which were scheduled to be held on Sunday.
One of the agitating teachers, Prof Rezaul Karim, said the VC, violating rules of the university and seniority, appointed Prof Samir as the dean.
VC Prof Fayequzzaman said he followed the rules and appointed Prof Kumar who is the most senior pharmacy teacher.
