BCL leaders accused of sexual harassment, threats
A female student of Comilla University has accused two Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leaders in the campus of threatening her with violence after she protested their sexually inappropriate comments. The archaeology student lodged a complaint with the university proctor and a hearing was held at the proctor office yesterday. The accused, Bangabandhu Hall BCL Joint General Secretary and public administration student Jasim Uddin and Publicity Secretary and economics student Masud Alam, allegedly made sexual comments at the student while she was standing in front of her residential hall on Wednesday. When she protested the remarks, they threatened to beat her publicly in the campus and strip her. They also warned her that she would be made to disappear if she complained to anyone. When contacted, the female student said she could only describe part of what the men had told her. “I feel ashamed to repeat the things they said to me. The university authority held a hearing where they claimed we did not even meet that day,” she said. Jasim Uddin could not be contacted for comments. Masud Alam told the Dhaka Tribune he and Jasim had not even come across their accuser. Masud alleged that the allegations were a conspiracy against them. Proctor Md Ainul Huq said he had received the complaint from the student and the authority was investigating the accused. “If the charges are proven, legal action will be taken against them,” he said.
