Dhaka University (DU) officers and employees alleged that Estate Manager Fatema Binte Mustafa has cancelled 49 flat allotments whimsically.

They claimed that the Estate Manager cancelled the allotments based on incorrect, imaginary and baseless allegations.

In this regard, Presidents and General Secretaries of DU Officers Association, Employees Association, Technical Employees Association and Fourth Class Employees Union jointly submitted application to Vice Chancellor Prof ASM Maksud Kamal on May 27.

According to the application, Estate Manager on April 25 issued letters to several officials and employees stating that they have violated the university norms by letting their apartments to outsiders and asked them to show reasons within five working days.
"The accused officers and employees replied to the letters. Only those officers and employees of the university who are financially insolvent accommodated sublet tenants in only one room. However, the Estate Manager complained that the entire apartments were rented out and through a letter on May 15 cancelled 49 flat allotments. But the complaint against which the allotments were cancelled is incorrect, fabricated and baseless," the application stated.

The associations alleged the Estate Office of favouritism as it did not issue notices to some officers and employees although they also sublet their flats.

The associations further alleged the Estate Office informed some allottees before the investigation for illegal occupancy so that they could ensure their presence in the allocated flats and escape punishment.

"In some cases, the children of the allottees were shown illegal tenants in the probe report and therefore the flat allocations were cancelled," the letter said.

They demanded reallocation of the flats and proper investigation into the allegations.

Meanwhile, 14 other officers and employees also claimed that the Estate Office investigation was biased. They said the Estate Manager punished many of them based on partial decision while saved many others close to the officers of the Estate Office.

"The university decided to cancel allotment of those who completely rented out their flats and warn others who accommodated sublet tenants in one or two rooms. Although we did not rent out our flats, the Estate Manager out of her personal vendetta cancelled our allotments," one of them told the Daily Observer.
