Portion of audio clip circulated with ill intention: Ducsu VP Nur
Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) Vice President Nurul Haque Nur today alleged that a portion of an audio clip containing his conversation has been circulated with ill intention.
This incident has impacted on his honour and created confusion among people, Nur said at a press conference at Madhur Canteen on the campus this morning.
The audio clip was a portion of his conversation between him and his aunt and one of his acquaintance, Nur said.
Terming the conversation completely personal and business related in nature, Nur claimed that he was taking to a man he knew about a bank guarantee of Tk 13 crore for his aunt's construction firm.
Meanwhile, a group of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) supporters were chanting slogans at the press conference venue when Nur was holding the press briefing, the correspondent said.
Yesterday, Muktijuddho Moncho, a platform comprising descendants of freedom fighters, padlocked Nur’s office room at the student union building, demanding his resignation from the post of VP.
Labelling Nur corrupt, some activists of the platform, allegedly led by its spokesperson Prof AKM Jamal Uddin of DU’s sociology department, locked the room at around 1pm, said witnesses.
Prior to that, they burnt an effigy of Nur centring an unverified audio clip in which a person was heard requesting another to be a bank guarantor of a project.
Later, Muktijuddho Moncho activists pasted two posters on the room’s door which read “Corrupt VP Nur has to resign, he has no place on Dhaka University campus.”
