A former student of a university in the capital has accused Dhaka University (DU) professor Nadir Junaid from the Mass Communication & Journalism department of sexual harassment and emotional abuse.

The complaint letter was given to the DU Proctor Professor Dr Md Maksudur Rahman via e-mail on Wednesday morning.

At 11am, another person as the representative of the student gave a hard copy of the written complaint to the proctor.

After receiving the complaint, the DU proctor said: "I have received the complaint letter by e-mail, and also in hard copy. I have already sent the complaint letter to the vice-chancellor of the university."

The Dhaka University (DU) administration had granted a three-month leave to Prof Nadir Junaid following allegations of sexual harassment against him.

Prof Dr Abul Mansur Ahmed, the department’s chairperson, confirmed that Prof Junaid has been sent on leave until May 12.

The decision comes in response to student protests demanding a thorough investigation into the allegations.
