Shovon quits DU Senate, Rabbani begs PM's forgiveness
Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon has resigned from the Dhaka University Senate as a student representative amid allegations of extortion against him.
His resignation came on Monday, two days after he was removed from the Bangladesh Chhatra League as its president. "On behalf of Shovon, some students submitted the resignation letter on Monday afternoon. We'll now take the next decision," Vice Chancellor Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman told reporters.
Meanwhile, Golam Rabbani, who was removed from the Bangladesh Chhatra LeagueÂ as its general secretary, has urged Awami League chief Sheikh Hasina to forgive his past misdeeds.
On Monday, Rabbani, who faced charges of extortion, used his Facebook account to beg the party chief's forgiveness.
"Our affectionate leader, I regret that I've hurt you; I beg your forgiveness for it," Rabbani wrote on Facebook.
Rabbani's removal from Bangladesh Chhatra League as its general secretary for extortion has raised questions over his position in the Dhaka University Central Students' Union.
