Liton Ali and Ershadul, members of the governing body, said that they went to the college in the afternoon after receiving information that the principal was lying in his room in a drunken state. 

“We saw him lying there in a drunken state. There was an odour of liquor also in the room. Seeing us, he hid the bottle of liquor in his pocket,” they claimed.

“Today he got sick after drinking liquor. The teachers also complained to the president of the governing body about his activities. He promised to take action but there has been no action till now.” 

Teacher Mosharraf, who took the principal home, said, "I left the principal at home because he felt ill. I don't know whether he was drunk.”
