>sexual harassment: JU teacher exonerated

>THE Jahangirnagar University (JU) teacher for whose dismissal students went on fast unto death programme last month was cleared of sexual harassment charges last night at a special syndicate meeting. (full report)
The agitating students, however, rejected the syndicate decision right away, starting a sit-in at the university Shaheed Minar to realise their demand.
Earlier in the evening, the syndicate meeting cleared Associate Professor Sanowar Hossain Sunny, chair at the drama and dramatics department, of the charges after reviewing a probe report in this regard.
A policeman read out the syndicate decision to the students waiting outside the administrative building, on behalf of acting Vice Chancellor Prof Moniruzzaman, who presided over the meeting.
The announcement said Prof Sanowar has been exonerated as charges against him were not proved beyond doubt.
Students immediately rejected the acquittal and began chanting slogans against the VC and the accused teacher.
