Nine Buet students expelled from dormitories over ragging

17 others face suspension for different terms
Dhaka, Nov 28 – Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) authorities have taken punitive actions against 26 students for their involvement in ragging in two dormitories.
Of them, nine were expelled from two residential halls and suspended from academic activities for different terms while 17 others were suspended from the halls for different periods. Director of Buet Directorate of Student’s Welfare (DSW) Prof Dr Mizanur Rahman came up with the information at a press briefing in front of the vice-chancellor office on Thursday evening.
Buet Board of Residence and Discipline took the action at a meeting on Wednesday, he said.
Six students of Ahsanullah Hall and three others of Suhrawardy Hall were expelled from the dormitories and suspended from the academic activities for different terms.
They are Md Mobassher Hossain Shanta, ASM Mahadi Hasan, Akib Hasan Rafin, Sabbasachi Das Dibbo, Plabon Chowdhury, Nahid Ahmed, Arnab Chowdhury and Md Forhad Hossain.
Seventeen students of Suhrawardy Hall were suspended for different terms from dormitory for their involvement in ragging.
Besides, four other students of Ahsanullah Hall were warned for their activities.
With this, two of the three fresh demands of general students — who were protesting for over a month to ensure justice of Abrar Fahad – -were met.
Prof Mizanur, also the member secretary of the board, said, “The probe body recommended punishment against the students for their involvement in ragging in Suhrawardy and Ahsanullah halls.”
He also said the third demand of protesting students to categorise and include student politics and ragging-related issues into the Buet Ordinance through the approval of the academic council and syndicate will be met by the next week.
Abrar Fahad, a second-year student of Buet’s electrical and electronic engineering department, was beaten to death by a group of BCL men at the university’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 7. – UNB
