Earlier, President M Zillur Rahman, also Chancellor of the university appointed them on June 6 for Dhaka University (DU). Prof Nasreen Ahmad of Geography & Environment Department and Dr Shahid Akhter of Soil Science Department appointed as DU`s Pro-Vice Chancellors. Besides, Prof Kamal Uddin of International Business department made Treasurer of the university.
Their appointments came a day after resignation of Pro-VC Prof Harun-or Rashid and Treasurer Prof Mizanur Rahman from their respective posts on Tuesday. The resignations came weeks after the pro-government blue panel lost in the university syndicate election to the opposition-backed white panel. The election disaster is widely blamed on conflicts between the Pro-VC, the treasurer and VC Professor AAMS Arefin Siddique on different issues.
