Dhaka, Mar 11 : Dhaka, Mar 11 (UNB) –The voting of Bangladesh-Kuwait Maitree Hall union polls has been suspended following an allegation of stuffing ballot boxes.

General students came up with the allegation saying that they recovered a sack of ballot from the reading room of the hall on Monday morning which was stuffed overnight.

Later in the morning, the students started staging protests against it.

Following their protests, Pro-Vice Chancellor Muhammad Samad and Proctor Prof AKM GolamRabbani visited the spot.

As the student’s allegation was proved right, the Dhaka University authorities suspended the voting, said the Pro-VC.

 

Meanwhile, the DU authorities also suspended acting provost of the hall Shabnam Jahan.

Meanwhile, Prof Dr. Mahbuba Nasreen has been appointed as the new provost, said Pro-Vice Chancellor Muhammad Samad.

The voting in the much-awaited election to Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) and its hall unions began on Monday morning.
