BUET’s only female dorm christened Sabequn Nahar Sony Hall

Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) has decided to christen its only female residential dormitory Sabequn Nahar Sony Hall.

Sabequn Nahar Sony was a second-year chemical engineering student of BUET. She was killed in crossfire of a gunfight between two factions of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), the student wing of then ruling BNP, on June 8, 2002.

This decision was taken at the 526th meeting of the university’s Syndicate on November 3, Dr Md Forkan Uddin, registrar of the university, said in a statement.

Dr Mizanur Rahman, director of student welfare of the university, told UNB that the female dorm was named after Sabequn Nahar Sony, following a demand from the students.

Besides, another under-construction residential hall for the female students of the university has been named after Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnessa Mujib.
