The Jagannath University authorities have suspended a teacher and an admin staff on charges of alleged ‘negligence of duty and indulging in malpractices’ during the "D" unit entrance examination of the university.
A notification issued by the university on Saturday confirmed suspension of management lecturer Dewan Badrul Hasan and Emdadul Hoque, a staff member of the same department, for ‘negligence of duty and for their involvement in unethical practices’ during Friday's "D" section entrance exam.
A three member inquiry committee headed by Law faculty Dean Prof Ali Akakas has also been formed to probe the incident.
The committee has been asked to submit its report within two weeks.
Speaking to bdnews24.com Vice Chancellor Prof Mijanur Rahman said, "He acted over and beyond the duties and responsibilities assigned to him.”
“He kept things where he should not have kept. He has been temporarily suspended on this ground." The VC did not elaborate further.
Reacting to the developments, the sacked teacher Badrul Hasan confirmed that he had been suspended on charges of negligence. He said that he has two weeks to prove that he was not involved in any unethical practice.
A total of 48,012 students competed for 590 seats under the "D" unit of the university.
