“Why did the examination department and concerned department remain oblivious to this question and why were the students asked a question like this,” he said and added that the management of the university swung into action when students raised this issue.

The faculty member, however, suspected that the services of the lecturer were terminated after the ministry took notice of the incident.

However, the additional registrar said the faculty member was sacked on January 5 while the ministry took notice on January 19. He added that the CUI’s reply was submitted to the ministry on Feb 2.
