Rajshahi, Aug 04 – Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) Central Executive Committee expelled Mushfiq Tahmid Tonmoy, organising secretary of its Rajshahi University (RU) unit, for hiring proxy examinees for admission seekers.

Tonmoy was expelled from the Awami League's student wing for violating party discipline with his involvement in admission test irregularities, BCL Central Committee President Al Nahian Khan Joy and General Secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee said Thursday.

On July 26, four people were arrested for tampering with the admission test of the "A" unit of the RU through impersonation. Later, a mobile court sentenced them to one-year imprisonment.

One of the arrestees, Bayezid Khan, told the police that Tonmoy had arranged for him to appear as a proxy.

RU Wednesday cancelled the entry test result of an admission seeker who hired a proxy examinee to take the exam for him.

Proxy examinee Bayezid secured the first position on behalf of Tanveer Ahmed in Group-2 of the A unit entry test for the academic year 2021-2022. - UNB
