Southeast Missouri State University officials say the university did nothing wrong in allowing the overseas student charged with attempting to blow up the Federal Reserve to be a student there last spring.
Quazi Nafis is the former international student from Bangladesh charged with trying to blow up the Federal Reserve building in New York.
University leaders told the Southeast Missourian that they followed protocol and procedures throughout their brief affiliation with Nafis. They say they never saw anything that would warrant alarm or rouse suspicion.
The Bangladeshi man who allegedly tried to blow up the New York Federal Reserve Bank with 1,000 pounds of inert explosives has Missouri connections.
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis came to the United States on a student visa to study at Southeast at Southeast Missouri State University.
He arrived at the university in January, but did not do well academically - he took 12 hours of entry level courses on transfer probation but could not earn a 2.0 grade point average and the university suspended him.
