They were protesting over sitting for exams amid the pandemic

The Department of Archaeology at Comilla University has served show cause notices to 40 of its students over various academic and disciplinary issues.

The recipients of the notice are students of the 2016-17 session of the university and the fourth batch of the department.

Associate Professor Muhammad Sohrab Uddin, the head of the department, issued the notices on Sunday asking them to respond within seven days.

According to the allegations, the students had been making harsh and embarrassing remarks about the department on social media since September 1. They also shared screenshots of their academic conversation with their teachers.

The students waged a movement against the department and went directly to the vice chancellor of the university without discussing the issues with the student-advisors and the head of the department.

Wishing anonymity, a fourth batch student said: "Since the department does not have the power to take the exams amid the pandemic, I went directly to the vice chancellor to make the demand. We wrote about this on Facebook.

“We are shocked to see the show cause notice, issued against us.”

Department Chairman Muhammad Sohrab Uddin said: "Students will make demands. That is normal. However, no teacher should be humiliated. If you go directly to the vice chancellor without discussing any other issue in the department, it implies that there is no discipline in the department.

“As the accused students are sitting for examinations now, we will sit with them and resolve the issues.”

The students of the fourth batch were able to complete only four semesters in about five years. 

The fifth semester examination of the batch started on Sunday.
