ACC starts probing ex-VC for ‘graft’
Professor Khondoker Nasiruddin

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has begun looking into the allegations of corruption against Professor Khondoker Nasiruddin, former vice-chancellor (VC) of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU) in Gopalganj. The anti-graft body assigned its director, Sheikh Md Fanafillah, to lead the investigation after a meeting held yesterday.

On September 30, Nasiruddin finally resigned from the post of VC of BSMRSTU in Gopalganj, a day after a probe conducted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) found evidence of irregularities and corruption against him. Nasiruddin stepped down amid student protests on the BSMRSTU campus. The students had been demanding his resignation since September 18.

The students alleged that Nasiruddin charged extra for admissions, dormitory rent, and medical treatment. Protests began at the university after Fatema Tuz Zinia, a second-year student of law and a reporter at a daily newspaper, was suspended over a Facebook post highlighting the allegations against Nasiruddin.

The protests turned aggressive after the video of a conversation between the former VC and Fatema went viral. The video showed Nasiruddin chastising the student and making derogatory comments against her father.

The authorities later withdrew Fatema’s suspension but were forced to shut down the university after failing to appease the protesters.

As the protests raged on, violence erupted on campus. Twenty students were injured in an attack perpetrated by alleged outsiders.
