Authorities of Brojomohun (BM) College in Barishal have ordered six female students to vacate their Banmali Ganguly Hostel dorm rooms on Thursday in order to conduct a “neutral investigation” into multiple allegations the students raised against a female Chhatra League leader on the campus.
The students – Jannatul Ferdousi, Rahima Afroz, Fatima Shimu, Shakila, Tanzila Akhter Mishti and Sharmin Akhter – have been demonstrating against Jhumur, leader in Bangladesh Chhatra League's unit in the college who allegedly tortured other female students and was involved in drug peddling inside the dorm, confirmed Fatima Shimu, one of the protesting students.
Multiple female students of the college told the Dhaka Tribune that the college authorities never pay heed to official complaints raised by other students against Jhumur.
Confirming the expulsion, BM College Shafiqur Rahman Shikder said: “The six students were told to leave so we could conduct neutral investigation. We will take necessary steps after the investigation.”
Quite recently, an angry mob of students inside the Banmali Ganguly Hostel gave Jhumur a beating after she threatened and beat up a few students.
Later, she was thrown out from the dorm by the mob, which included the six aforementioned students.
Later, according to students, Jhumur, with the help of some top Chhatra League leaders in the college, persuaded the college authorities to kick the six out of their dorm.
Meanwhile, students of the college were infuriated by the move and took to social media platforms to heavily criticize the college authorities.
