Subject: Engineering Incident Update
Wednesday’s precautionary sweep by hazmat officials, of an engineering chemistry lab, was prompted by a student who threatened the potential use of dangerous chemicals. This student was arrested after a search of his home revealed chemicals stolen from the university. He has been charged with theft and remains in police custody pending a court appearance today.
The student’s name is Mohamadmahdi Kowsari. A photograph is attached.
Out of concern for the safety of our community, the president has suspended this student and banned him from the University of Saskatchewan. Any sighting or knowledge of this student on campus property should be reported to Saskatoon Police Service or Protective Services immediately.
This incident is a reminder that our campus is home to many hazardous materials because of the nature of the work that we do. Day to day, these are handled under strict adherence to safety standards and procedures. We must continue this diligence in our handling of such materials and never hesitate to report concerns or unusual activity.
If you notice unusual activity or have concerns about safety, please report them to Protective Services. In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
