Islamic University, Nov 13 (UNB) - The authorities of the Islamic University (IU) in Kushtia have suspended one of its officials and an employee temporarily for their alleged involvement with taking bribe from a job seeker.
The decision was made at an emergency meeting of the university with its Vice-chancellor Professor M Harun-Ur-Rashid Askari in the chair, said sources at IU registrar office on Tuesday.
The vice-chancellor issued the suspension orders against Umar Ali, assistant registrar of IU Law and Shariyah Faculty and Munshi Tariqul Islam, an employee of transport section of the university, after getting a written complaint from a job seeker, said IU Acting Registrar SM Abdul Latif.
Earlier, a three member probe body led by Professor M Rezwanul Islam of Biotechnology and Genetics Engineering department was formed to look into the matter, he added.
The university authorities asked the body to submit its reports as early as possible, the registrar said.
The vice-chancellor, however, told UNB that legal steps would be taken against them after receiving the investigation reports from the body.
According to the written complaint, Umar and Tariqul took Tk 11,40,000 from Mamunur Rashid, a resident of Rajshahi district, luring him to be appointed as a hardware and network technician into the university. The duo took the money from Mamun using Umar’s Agrani Bank Account.
Later, the university authorities primarily investigated Umar’s Agrani Bank Account and found their involvement.
Chuadanga, Nov 13 (UNB) – Following a High Court order, the authorities of Impact Memorial Community Health Centre on Tuesday paid Tk 5 lakh compensation to each of the 20 patients who lost their eyesight after surgery at the clinic here on March 5.
The check was handed over to the patients at a programme at the conference room of the hospital around 11 am in the presence of civil surgeon Doctor Khairul Alam.
Besides, the hospital authorities will give them treatment free of cost until their death.
On March 5, a total of 24 patients underwent cataract operations at the hospital and a day after the surgery all the patients were released. But a few hours after returning home 20 of them felt severe pain in their eyes due to infection.
