The recommendation came from a Disciplinary Board meeting of the university with DU Vice-chancellor (VC) Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman in the chair on Thursday.

The expulsions will be carried out after approval by the Syndicate Committee, confirmed DU Proctor Prof AKM Golam Rabbani.

Besides, three teachers of the Institute of Social Welfare and Research of the university were also recommended to be punished for giving inconsistent marks in the internal examination papers.
