Forty-six students suspended for different offences

The disciplinary board of Dhaka University has recommended the expulsion of 67 students on different charges, including admission test fraud and drug abuse.

Of them, 63 students are accused of cheating at university admission tests, while the rest have been charged with drug abuse and possession of arms illegally.

Additionally, 46 other students were suspended for different offences.

Two of them were recommended for six-month suspensions each for assaulting journalists, and 13 others for various terms in cases relating to snatching, mugging and drugs.

The board gave nine of the suspended students a seven-day notice period to defend themselves.

DU Proctor Professor Golam Rabbani confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune on Tuesday, saying that the final decision in this regard would be taken at the next syndicate meeting of the university.

"Allegations of question leakage were brought against 87 students. Of them, expulsion was recommended for 63 since they took recourse to illegal means to get admitted to the university," he said.

The students were enrolled in the university through fraudulent means in the academic sessions from 2012-13 to 2017-18.

Earlier on August 6, 2019, the DU authorities suspended 69 students for cheating at admission tests, among whom are the 63 students.

They faced the decision for violation of the Public Act, Money Laundering Act, and other laws of the country, Rabbani said.

Four residential students of Haji Muhammad Mohsin Hall were recommended for expulsion for drug abuse and arms possession, added Rabbani.

According to Dhaka University laws, no expelled student has a chance to challenge the decision of expulsion, but suspended students can appeal against their suspension.
