Sexual harassment

Staff Correspondent

Dhaka University authorities have sent a psychology department teacher on a year's forced leave after charges were proved against him involving sexual harassment of a female student, a university official said Sunday.

The DU syndicate, in a meeting on Saturday, formed a five-member committee with pro-vice chancellor AFM Yusuf Haider as its convener to suggest further possible action to be taken against him, DU treasurer Syed Abul Kalam Azad said.
A student of psychology submitted the complaint of sexual harassment by Dr Md Kamal Uddin to vice chancellor Prof SMA Faiz on April 23.
The DU syndicate formed a committee on May 13, headed by the treasurer, to investigate the matter.
bdnews24.com tried to contact Dr Kamal by phone for a comment but failed to reach him.
