“I will not spare the department of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology of SUST. They have killed my brother,” she wrote on her Facebook timeline, while also publishing some names, allegedly of SUST teachers.

According to the family and friends, the meritorious student who came first in his department, was gradually side-lined from the competition in teacher appointing - for which Pratik struggled for years.

Dr Sadeka Halim, dean of social sciences faculty and Salma Nasrin, chairman of linguistics department Robaet Ferdous, mass communication and journalism department professor, Abul Kashem Fazlul Haque, retired professor of bangla department were present among others in the human chain.
