The authorities of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU) in Gopalganj have expelled six students for ragging two first-year students. 

The decision came at an emergency meeting of the university’s proctorial body on Monday, said Md Mahbubur Rahman, public relations officer (PRO) of BSMRSTU. 

The expelled students are all in their second year of studying electronics and telecommunications engineering. 

They are: Md Shipon Ahmed, from Keraniganj, Dhaka; Md Shahin Mia, from Araihazar, Narayanganj; Nadim Islam, from Nagarpur, Tangail; Hridoy Kumar Dhar, from Nakla, Sherpur; Turzo Howlader, from Bhola sadar upazila; and Ashiquzzaman Limon, from Madhukhali, Faridpur. 

Speaking to reporters, BSMRSTU Proctor Ashiquzzaman Bhuiyan said the accused six students abused and humiliated Md Rajesh Hossain Shithil and Mahamud Hasan, first-year students of the university’s department of agriculture, in the name of ragging on Saturday, from 7pm till 10pm. 

“They [the raggers] also took a video of the incident and then posted it on Facebook, which went viral,” the proctor said. 

PRO Mahbubur said: “This came to the attention of the university administration, who called for an emergency meeting today [Monday] with Prof Dr Md Shahjahan, chairman of the department of electronics and telecommunications engineering, and Prof Anisuzzaman, acting chairman of the department of agriculture.” 

The meeting found the allegations of abuse in the name of ragging to be true, and decided to expel the six accused. 

The proctorial body also decided to file a case against the accused under the Digital Security Act, the proctor said.
