Earlier on Saturday, the authorities extended the Durga Puja vacation from September 22 till October 3 to fend off the movement. The students were ordered to leave halls within 10 am.

 

Students of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU) continued their demonstration for the fifth day on Monday, demanding resignation of Vice-Chancellor Prof Khondoker Nasiruddin.

Earlier on Saturday, the authorities extended the Durga Puja vacation from September 22 till October 3 to fend off the movement. The students were ordered to leave halls within 10 am.

Students alleged that there was no freedom of speech on the campus and that no-one could speak against irregularities of the VC.

BSMRSTU’s decision to suspended Fatema-tuz-Zinia, also the university correspondent of the Daily Sun, on September 10 for her ‘objectionable’ writings on Facebook triggered a student protest.

Her suspension order was revoked on Wednesday following widespread protests.
