Rajshahi University veterinary and animal science department chair Professor Ismat Ara Begum accused his fellow teacher of disrespectful behavior and vandalizing her room on Tuesday.
She lodged a written complaint with the university vice chancellor on Tuesday afternoon accusing associate professor Hakimul Haque.
In her complaint, Professor Ismat Ara Begum alleged that assistant proctor Hakimul Haque had long been misbehaving with various teachers of the department.
‘On October 16, Hakimul abused me and called me ‘pig’ and ‘crazy’. He came to my office at about 9:30am on Tuesday for a recommendation for his project proposal. As I asked him to express his regret for the earlier incident, he threatened me to sign without showing remorse, abused me in profanity, and vandalized my room’, she alleged.
However, professor Hakimul Haque denied the allegation of vandalizing the chair’s room.
He claimed that he went to the department chair’s office on Tuesday for her recommendation for a research project.
But, she did not sign my project due to some previous incident. Naturally I get angry’, he added.
Contacted, RU vice chancellor professor Golam Sabbir Sattar refused to comment on this issue saying that he was in a meeting.
