Dhaka University (DU) authorities suspended four students for drug abuse and possession of arms and also served them a show cause notice to explain why they should not be expelled.  

"If they will not reply to the show cause notice within seven days then the stiffest measures will be taken as per university policy," Dhaka University Proctor Prof AKM Golam Rabbani said on Wednesday.

The suspended students are Hasibur Rahman of Institute of Education and Research, Abu Bakar of the Philosophy department, Imran Hossain of the World Religion and Culture department, and Eftekharul Islam of the Pali and Buddhist Studies department. 

All are students of Hazi Mohammad Mohsin residential hall at the university. All three are fourth year students except for Abu Bakar who is a first year student. 

They are also Bangladesh Chhatra League activists and were earlier expelled from the Chhatra League hall unit.     

Proctor Golam, speaking to Dhaka Tribune, said: “The decision was taken at an opinion exchange meeting of the halls and hostels administration of Dhaka University held at the Nawab Nabab Ali Chowdhury Building, with Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman in the chair.”

Among others, Pro VC (Academic) Prof Nasreen Ahmad and Pro VC (Administration) Prof Mohammad Samad were present at the meeting.   

On October 8, Hasib and Bakar were held from Mohsin hall with yaba pills and arms while Imran escaped.  An arms case was later filed against the three. 

The meeting also decided that no outsiders could stay at the dormitories and seat allocation will be done on the basis of merit for honours first year students.
