The Chhatra League panel members of Dhaka University Central Student Union (Ducsu) have demanded the resignation of its Vice President (VP) Nurul Haque Nur over allegations of corruption.

The Chhatra League panel members of Dhaka University Central Student Union (Ducsu) have demanded the resignation of its Vice President (VP) Nurul Haque Nur over allegations of corruption.

Some 23 Chhatra League members of Ducsu, headed by its General Secretary Golam Rabbani, made the allegations in a press conference held at the Ducsu office building on Sunday.

Ducsu member Rakib Hossain Rakib read out a written speech where they demanded the resignation of Nur.

It stated that Nur should be investigated for corruption, which was revealed in a leaked phone call conversation.

A conversation between the Ducsu vice-president and an expatriate Bangladeshi over a monetary contract was leaked on a private channel on December 3.

In the audio clip, the expatriate asked Nur to send his bank account along with an email address.

Meanwhile, Rabbani answered the queries of the reporters.

Through the speech, they claimed that Nur has not spent a dime from the budget of Tk5 lakh that is allocated for the Ducsu vice president to spend on student welfare.

When reporters asked that VP Nur mentioned several times that his application to withdraw the money went unanswered, Rabbani said Nur has not filed any applications.

Recently, Rabbani was removed from his position as general secretary of central Chhatra League when an allegation came to light that he and the then president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon extorted money from Jahangirnagar University Vice Chancellor (VC) Prof Farzana.
