SYLHET, May 27: A student of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) was sent to jail on Wednesday by a court here on charge of sexually harassing a female student of the university.
The student was identified as Rifat Adnan Papon, a student of the Business Administration department.
Akhter Hossain, Officer-in-Charge of Jalalabad Police Station, said Papon was produced before the court following a general diary (GD) under Section 54 on the day, upon which the Judge sent him to jail.
Papon had a relationship with the female student of the varsity's Economics department for long, campus sources said, adding that the relation broke up recently.
On Sunday evening, Papon beat up the girl with sandal as she did not respond to his call while gossiping with her friends at the main gate of the campus around 8:00pm.
Later, the female student submitted a written complaint to the acting Proctor of the university against Papon for allegedly harassing her sexually on Monday.
Police arrested him from the campus following a request by the university administration the next day.
