The private university's political science teacher Mubashar has been missing since November 7
The North South University (NSU) vice-chancellor (VC) has said that they have nothing to do except wait for Dr Mubashar Hasan, a political science teacher of the institution who is missing, to come back.
“We do not know where he is, we can only expect him to return. We can only wait, and we are waiting for him to come back,” VC Prof Atiqul Islam told the Dhaka Tribune on Sunday.
Asked whether NSU has taken any legal steps over Mubashar’s disappearance, he said the university authorities did not, but the teacher’s family did.
“We do not have any clue to suspect anyone. We are looking towards the law enforcement agencies,” he said, when asked whether they suspect anyone over the matter.
People acquainted with Mubashar said he was a liberal scholar who used to enthusiastically accommodate the opinions of anyone regardless of the political implications and that could have any link to his sudden disappearance.
Dr Abdur Rob Khan, dean at School of Humanities and Social Science at NSU, said that Mubashar was a very polite person. “I can’t think of any reason for his disappearance.”
He added: “Mubasher was doing only academic activities here. As per my understanding, he did not work on any research that can be a reason for his disappearance.”
NSU’s political science teacher Mubashar has been missing since November 7. The next day, his family had lodged a General Diary with Khilgaon police.
Police, however, are yet to come up with any lead on his whereabouts.
