President M Abdul Hamid university authorities cannot avoid responsibility if any student lost his/her life on the campus.
He said, “Students get admitted into the university to acquire knowledge but not for facing any expulsion penalty or becoming dead.”
Mentioning the recent untoward and unexpected incidents in different universities, President Hamid said it has tarnished the image of university and learners as well.
He further said, “If the authorities concerned would have taken pragmatic steps timely, the unexpected incidents might have not occurred.”
The President said this while speaking at the 52nd Convocation of Dhaka University (DU) on Monday afternoon.
Nobel laureate in Physics Prof Takkaki Kajita, also director of the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research of Tokyo University in Japan, attended the programme as the convocation speaker.
DU VC Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman, Pro-VC (administration) Prof Dr Muhammad Samad, Pro-VC (education) Prof Dr Nasrin Ahmed, also spoke on the occasion.
