The authorities of Jagannath University (JnU) on Monday suspended a student for allegedly posting derogatory remarks about Prophet Muhammad.
The suspended student was identified as Tithi Sarker, a third-year student of the Zoology Department.
A suspension order signed by Registrar Md Ohiduzzaman has been issued.
A show-cause notice was also served seeking an explanation why her studentship should not be permanently cancelled.
On Saturday, students of the university staged a protest rally under the banner of ‘general students’ demanding permanent expulsion of Tithi Sarkar within 72 hours.
