Prince Mahbub, a first year student of Philosophy said, the authority collect huge amount money from us during enrolment at the university and on collection registration card from hall. As we are new in the campus so we don't know the real fact. Hence paying money, we have nothing to do.

Director of audit cell of the university Niyamul Hauqe denied the offense and said generally education ministry authority audit the matter. He blaming the education ministry said, "As they come to the campus after two or three years for audit and it is their responsibility. If any allegation comes to us from the student, we investigate the matter," he added.
