A female student of Dhaka University (DU) started a fast-unto-death on Thursday night demanding the arrest of former Ducsu vice-president Nurul Haque Nur and five others in a rape case.
The protester, a student of Islamic Studies Department of the university, started the hunger strike on the premises of Raju Memorial Sculpture accompanied by some classmates and female activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL).
She said she would continue the strike until Nur and Hasan Al Mamun, suspended convener of Bangladesh Sadharan Chhatra Odhikar Sangrakkhan Parishad, are arrested.
