BRAC University students resume protest

BRAC University students resumed their movement with a new demand, withdrawal of the registrar, from Friday morning.

A spokesperson for the protesters, Kamrun Nahar Dana, said that they had ended their hunger strike 'out of respect for the teachers' on Thursday night. But the matter was not discussed with the rest of the general students, reports bdnews24.com.

Earlier, they halted their movement on Thursday night following assurances from the university authorities, but they also had issued a 72-hour ultimatum for their demands to be met.

Kamrun Nahar Dana said they resumed the protests and will stay away from classes and exams as their demand for the registrar's withdrawal during the investigation into the assault of a teacher has not been met.

"We had said that the registrar cannot continue in his post for the sake of a fair inquiry. The university has not issued any public announcement to that effect."

The protesting students have also declared that they will not take any test held under Registrar Md Sahool Afzal, a former army officer.

Since law department teacher Farhaan Uddin Ahmed was allegedly assaulted by Afzal and several other officials on Jul 31, the private university at Mohakhali of Dhaka has been in total disarray with the students demonstrating demanding justice.
