SUST VC, four others sued

Two cases have been filed against five people, including the Vice-Chancellor of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), for deducting Tk 271 from the salary of teachers for health insurance.
The university's treasurer, registrar, account manager and Pragati Life Insurance's managing director were accused in the cases filed on September 12 by Prof Dr Md Abdul Hai of Mathematics department and Assistant Prof Dr Md Rafikul Islam of petroleum and mining engineering.
Ershadul Haque, the lawyer of the plaintiffs, said his clients moved the court challenging the university's health insurance and deduction of insurance money from their salaries despite their unwillingness.
The health insurance agreement was signed between the university and Pragati Life Insurance in February.
