A female student of DU filed a complaint against five to six unidentified students for sexually harassing her in the Teacher-Student Centre (TSC).
"A female student filed a complaint to the proctor's office of the university and based on the complaint, the proctor office handed over a student named Raidul Khan Kaushik to the police station for interrogation," said DU proctor AKM Golam Rabbani.
According to the complaint, the victim was talking to a person at TSC around 7pm on Monday when five to six unidentified youths talked to them and at one stage assaulted both of them.
Later, a case was filed against five to six unidentified people with the Shahbagh Police Station.
Based on the complaint, after seeing the CCTV footage of TSC, the proctor's office initially got the involvement of a second-year student of the university named Abdullah Al Maruf.
Later, when he went to catch the student at Madhur canteen, Maruf led the proctor to another student named Raidul Khan Kaushik. After finding Kaushik, the proctor's office handed him over to Shahbagh Police Station for preliminary interrogation.
