Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) today arrested Holy Family Red Crescent Medical College’s Assistant Professor, Dr Salauddin Chowdhury, on charge of sexually harassing a student.
ANM Imran Khan, assistant director of RAB’s Legal and Media Wing, confirmed the development to The Asian Tribune.
RAB will hold a press briefing this evening regarding the incident, he added.
Ramna Model Police Station Officer-in-Charge, Monirul Islam, said that the student filed a case against the teacher under the Women and Child Repression Prevention Act yesterday.
Quoting the case statement, the OC said that Salauddin had made several inappropriate propositions to the student via Facebook messenger – starting on September 9, 2020. When she refused his advances, the teacher threatened to fail her in exams.
When he met her on campus, he asked her to delete the messages and to meet him alone on several occasions. The teacher, according to the student, is now threatening her, the OC added.
