While talking to daily sun, Prof. Ashraful Alam said that the hall gurd Delower Hossain was using kitchen room of the hall without any permission of hall administration.

'He was using that room to make a gathering with the drug addicted over two months,' said Prof. Alam.

When asked, the accused Delwar Hossain denied the allegations adding that he wasnt at the hall since Monday afternoon.

“I left the key of that room in a shop and went to Islamnagar market (near the campus). Then Khaleq and Zahid called me and told me that they have to give me some keys," said Delwar Hossain.

“Later they enter the room with the key. After that the provost sir searched and found yaba. I don't know anything else about this. he added.
