The Dhaka University authorities have temporarily expelled four students on charge of their involvement with arms and drugs.
The students are: Hasibur Rahman alias Tushar of Education and Research Institute, Abu Bakr alias Alif of Philosophy, Imran Hossain of World Religion and Culture, and Iftekharul Islam alias Tushar of Pali and Buhist Studies departments of the university.
They all are students of Haji Muhammad Mohsin Hall and involved with Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL). They were also expelled from the dormitory.
The expelled students were also asked to show cause why their expulsion should not be permanent.
If they fail to show causes within seven working days, the university administration will take the highest action against them as per university rules.
The expulsion decision was taken at a meeting of residential halls and hostel administration, confirmed DU proctor professor AKM Golam Rabbani.
On October 8, DU proctorial team raided in a room at Hazi Mohammad Mohsin Hall and detained Hasibur Rahman Tushar, former deputy sports secretary and Abu Bakr Alif, former deputy finance secretary of the hall unit BCL, along with Yaba and locally made arms.
