Earlier on Wednesday afternoon, he announced to resign as soon as possible at a press conference in at Senate Hall of the university.
Anwar Hossain said, “A delegation of the teachers association urged me to resign following Tuesday’s unrest. So, I have decided to quit.”
Students of university vandalized residences of vice-chancellor, treasurer and some teachers, minutes after the death of M Malek, a master degree student of statistics, on Tuesday night.
The VC claimed that the activists of Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami, carried out the vandalism.
