Vice President (VP) of Dhaka University Central Student Union (Ducsu) Nurul Haque Nur has said he will submit his resignation if any allegations against him are proven true after investigation.

In a phone call with this correspondent on Sunday, Nur said only a portion of his telephonic conversation was published with an ill motive to tarnish his reputation.

A conversation between the Ducsu vice-president and an expatriate Bangladeshi over a monetary contract was leaked on a private channel on December 3.

In the audio clip, the expatriate asked Nur to send his bank account along with an email address.

VP Nur said: "After all this, if the allegations against me are proven, then they [Ducsu Chhatra League panel members] will not have to ask me, I will resign myself."

He added: "How can a person, who is accused in cases of extortion, tender business and drug abuse, raise such allegations against someone else?"

Recently, Rabbani was removed from his position as general secretary in central Chhatra League when an allegation came to light that he and the then president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon extorted money from Jahangirnagar University Vice Chancellor (VC) Prof Farzana.

Earlier in a press conference, the Ducsu Chhatra League panel members demanded the resignation of its Vice President (VP) Nurul Haque Nur over allegations of corruption.
