The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) completed its two day inquiry into allegations of corruption against former vice chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU), Prof Khondoker Md Nasiruddin, on Wednesday.

ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafilla arrived at BSMRSTU campus on Tuesday to investigate and collect evidence of corruption.

On the first day of his investigation, he interviewed teachers and other university staff. He provided a form to his interviewees to document information available to them regarding corruption and irregularities of the former VC.

On the second day of his investigation, he questioned accused CSE department teacher, Md Akkas Ali on corruption allegations during the former VC's tenure.

BSMRSTU Registrar Prof Md Nuruddin Ahmed said: "We have formed a five member committee to assist the ACC director with documents and information he needs for the investigation."

Previously on September 30, the VC stepped down amid student protests when a probe committee formed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) found evidence of irregularities and corruption on the part of the VC.

Student protests began with BSMRSTU authorities issuing a suspension order for second year law student Fatema-tuz-Zinia, also the university correspondent for the Daily Sun newspaper, for her reportedly objectionable comments about BSMRSTU on Facebook on September 10.

Although the university authorities revoked the suspension order on September 18 protests continued until VC Nasiruddin stepped down.
