JnU fires teacher for sexual harassment
The authorities of Jagannath University (JU) has sacked mass communication and journalism department teacher Mir Moshref Hossain aka Razib Mir for sexually harassing several female students.

The university's syndicate took the decision on his dismissal on Sunday after he was found guilty by three investigation committees, Vice-Chancellor Mizanur Rahman said.

This is the first sacking of any teacher by the university authorities for sexual abuse, according to bdnews24.com.

Razib was asked not to take postgraduate classes and withdraw himself from other activities of the department in April last year following the recommendation by one of the three investigation committees.

The committee was formed when some students complained to the VC that Razib had demanded that female students sleep with him and threatened to victimise them if they did not oblige.

The committee found prima facie substance in the allegations and he was later suspended. They held a public hearing in the presence of the complainants in November last year and later declared Razib guilty in its report.

In April, 2014, hundreds of Jagannath University students demonstrated on the campus and submitted a memorandum to the VC against Razib for allegedly backing militancy and making indecent proposals to female students.
