A man has been sentenced to six-months imprisonment for sexually harassing a female student of Chittagong University on a running bus.

Hathajari police station Officer in Charge (OC) Masud Alam confirmed that a mobile court sentenced the accused, Mohammad Manik Miah.

Manik Miah, 32 is from Hathajari upazila's Mondakini area.

He was caught by other passengers in the act and was handed over to the police when the bus reached the university.

About the matter, the university Proctor SM Monirul Islam said "We received the complaint from the victim and we told the police to take legal action against him".
