Prof Shahjahan appointed acting VC of BSMRSTU
Md Shahjahan has been appointed as the acting vice-chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University, or BSMRSTU, in Gopalganj, a week after Prof Khondoker Nasiruddin resigned from the post amid allegations of irregularities against him.
Shahjahan, a professor of electronics and telecommunication engineering, was assigned to the post on Monday, said Md Sohrab Hossain, senior secretary to the Secondary and Higher Education Division.
"No new VC has been appointed yet. That is why senior teacher Prof Md Shahjahan has been given the responsibility of acting vice-chancellor. He will carry out the routine tasks of VC."
When asked about this, Shahjahan said, "I have been informed about the matter by SMS from the Ministry of Education. Maybe tomorrow I will get a letter."
Protests erupted at the university after Fatema Tuz Zinia, a second-year student of law and a reporter of a daily, was suspended over a Facebook post on September 11.
