The decision was taken during a syndicate meeting of the university, said SUST registrar Md Ishfakul Hossain.

The 4 students- Mahmudul Hasan Rudra of Social Work Department, Sajjad Hossain Riad of Statistics Department, Rahat Siddique of Anthropology Department and Suman Sarker Jony of Political Studies Department-were expelled for a semester.
