Under fire, JU upgrades Holey victim's widow's job
Jahangirnagar University has appointed the widow of Assistant Police Commissioner Rabiul Karim, killed in action during the Dhaka terror attack, as an administrative officer after facing criticism for giving her an office assistant position. On Friday afternoon, JU Vice Chancellor Farzana Islam handed over an appointment letter to Umme Salma, a post-graduate degree holder, for an ad hoc appointment as administrative officer in the education section of the registrar office.

However, on Thursday she was appointed as a class III upper division assistant at the university library on a master-role basis (a no work, no pay system) for a daily wage of Tk525. The appointment was for 90 days. Salma interviewed for the administrative officer position in February. Her new appointment letter does not specify a salary, but says she will be paid according to the university ordinance and laws. Umme Salma told the Dhaka Tribune: “I thank the university for appointing me to an administrative position matching my qualifications. I think through this decision the university has honoured a martyr and his family.” JU administration sources alleged that the vice-chancellor appointed several Chhatra League leaders to the same officer post in 2015. On Thursday, one of those officers were made permanent.
