Jahangirnagar University (JU) authorities are using closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage to find a man who allegedly physically molested a female student on campus on January 22.
The incident took place inside the university's new arts and humanities building. The victim, a female student of the university was on the staircase with another female classmate, when a man came from behind. He hugged her and tried to touch her inappropriately, said the victim.
She has submitted a written complaint to the university authorities in this regard.
“The incident happened within 10 to 12 seconds. We also ran after him and screamed for help to catch him, but failed,” she said, “How can someone dare to assault a female student in broad daylight on campus? If the culprit isn't punished, these incidents will never stop.”
The written complaint has been handed over to anti-sexual harassment cell for further enquiry, said JU acting Proctor ASM Firoz Ul Hasan. “We have been trying our best to identify the man from CCTV footage and some still photos,” he said.
“We have already filed a general diary with Ashulia Police Station and informed law enforcement agencies to help identify the culprit,” he added.
