They have submitted a memorandum to the VC also
Dhaka University (DU) students sought the permanent removal of those admitted to the university through forgery, using digital devices at exam halls, or acquiring question papers before exams.
Hundreds of students made the demand at a human chain at the base of Aparajeyo Bangla. Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) Vice President (VP), Nurul Haque Nur, and others were present on Wednesday, expressing solidarity.
Students also expressed anger against the rackets that operate these misdeeds, and called upon the authorities to be vigilant and to prevent such wrongdoings in future admission tests.
They submitted a memorandum in this regard to the DU Vice-Chancellor, Prof M Akhtaruzzaman.
VP Nur said: “Those who have been illegally admitted to various departments must be expelled from the University. We also demand the cancellation of certificates of those students who graduated from the university after gaining admission through fraudulent means.”
The Ducsu VP also called upon university authorities to publish the names of all fraudulent students in the newspapers.
Talking to journalists, the VC said: “There is no scope for illegality at this university. We have taken this matter firmly and already identified some digital frauds. We are also taking the help of law enforcement agencies in this matter.”
“Once we get the correct information from them (law enforcement agencies), we will take action. This is an ongoing process,” he added.
A defeated independent VP candidate of Ducsu, Arani Semanti Khan, and Joint Secretary of Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council (BGSRPC), Faruk Hossain, among others, also spoke at the human chain gathering at Aparajeyo Bangla.
