On March 20, 2019, written examinations were held for the recruitment of 180 medical officers in BSMMU. A total of 8,557 medical doctors appeared in the 200-mark examination.

On May 12, 2019, recruitment exam results were published but the test participants seeking appointment as potential medical officers at the BSMMU took to the streets protesting apparent irregularities in the recruitment exam.

In wake of protest demonstration being launched by the participants in the recruitment exam, BSMMU authorities called off administrative steps for Viva-Voce examinations.

In the midst of seeming uncertainties and escalating tensions over the medical officer recruitment, an incident of vandalism occurred in the BSMMU VC's office.

Later in the evening, a case was filed with Shahbagh Police station.
