The teacher is namedd as Md Minhaz Uddin, according to an office order signed by registrar of the university Humayun Kabir.

Minhaz Uddin, a lecturer of Accounting and Information Systems department, is already in jail.

On 8 May, the police arrested Minhaz Uddin on charges of raping the female student of the accounting department.

The student filed a written complaint on 2 May, alleging that the teacher developed certain intimate relationship with her with a promise to marry her, according to the university officials.

The university authorities formed a four-member probe body and asked it to submit its report within seven working days from 2 May.

But later on 11 May, the probe committee was recommended to be reformed.

The victim female student told Prothom Alo on Monday, “I lodged a written complaint first with the vice-chancellor. Then, Minhaz threatened to kick me out of the campus.”

“He [Minhaz] is one of my distant relatives. He told my other relatives that I can do no harm to him. So, feeling insecure, I filed a case with the police station,” she added.
