Meanwhile, Rezwan Siddiqui Kabbo, a student of the Law department during the 2018-19 academic session, was expelled permanently for the vandalism of the university medical center.

‘According to the university acts three students are expelled permanently while three have been expelled for one year in their involvement in ragging and vandalism. 

No action had been taken against the two accused because of their non-involvement in the incident according to the investigation’, said IU proctor Dr Shahadat Hossain Azad.

Later, some students of the 2021-22 academic sessions locked the IU main gate to protest the authority’s decision this afternoon.

Incidentally, Rezwan Siddiki Kabbo and his two accomplices Atik Arman and Salman Aziz vandalized the emergency section office of the IU Medical Centre of the university at midnight on July 10.
