A department of Dhaka University yesterday barred one of its teachers from delivering class lectures of a course after a female student brought "verbal abuse" allegations against him.
The decision was taken at an internal meeting of the department as the teacher was found to be guilty of the allegations, said the department chairman, adding that they also sent a letter to the vice chancellor of DU “to take immediate steps against him as per the law of our university”.
The student in her written complaint, submitted on Tuesday, alleged that the teacher made indecent comments and hurled abuses at several female students as they were dressed in western attire in the classroom.
Denying the allegations of verbal abuse, the teacher said, “It's nothing but a conspiracy against me. Some of my colleagues instigated the students to submit the complaint against me.”
