Tensions mount at JU, demo continues defying authorities’ order

The students of Jahangirnagr University are still there occupying its different dormitories defying the university administration’s instruction to leave the campus by 10 am on Monday.

Witnesses said the students are staging demonstrations at different halls to press home their 4–point demand.

Their demands include withdrawal of the order to leave halls, allowing the female students to stay in one dormitory, providing them with the documents of the case filed on behalf of the university over the attack on some students and inserting the names of those involved in the attack in the case.

Earlier in the day, the JU hall provosts conducted a drive in their dormitories and asked the students to leave the campus right away.

ASM Firoz Ul Hasan, acting proctor of the university and provost of AFM Kamal Uddin Hall, said, “We’ve come here to inform the students about the government order, and no student will be allowed to defy the government rule. We’ve requested the student to leave the dormitories.”

About the security of the students, he said, “We’ve filed a case with Ashulia Police Station, and provosts are talking to the students now living in their respective dormitories.”

The students, however, have decided not to leave their dormitories.

Earlier, the JU authorities asked the students, who entered the dormitories forcibly violating the government order, to leave those by Monday morning.
