DU Correspondent :
Vice-President (VP) of Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) Nurul Huq Hur on Wednesday demanded punishment to those persons who assaulted him and other students on the SM Hall premises.
He also threatened to launch a tougher movement if the authorities of Dhaka University do not meet their demand by April 8.
The DUCSU VP said this at a protest rally held at the base of Raju Memorial Sculpture on Wednesday just a day after a group of Bangladesh Chhatra League activists assaulted him and kept him confined in a room in SM Hall for at least one and a half hours.
Nur said the vice-chancellor assured them to take exemplary punishment against those who attacked and assaulted them and ousting the outsiders and non-students from dormitories so they postponed their programme till Monday.
Earlier at 9am on Wednesday, the protesting students led by Nur conveyed to the DU Vice Chancellor Professor Md Akhtaruzzaman their demands including keeping the campus off-limits to outsiders.
Professor Md Akhtaruzzaman told the correspondent that he assured the students that appropriate measures would be taken against the attackers after investigation. He also advised the students to solve the problems through talks and remain alert so that no one can make situation on the campus unstable. Nur came under the assault when he went there to submit a memorandum protesting the attack on a resident student by some BCL men on Tuesday.
The BCL men also threw eggs at Nur and Akhtar Hossen, social welfare secretary of Ducsu, and harassed other protesters, including Shamsunnahar Hall union VP Sheikh Tasnim Afroze Emi.
Witnesses said Nur, along with some 15 to 20 students, went to SM Hall office around 5pm on Tuesday and submitted a memorandum to a house tutor, protesting the Monday's attack on Farid Hasan, who contested the March 11 hall union polls as an independent candidate for the post of general secretary.
Farid, a master's student of Urdu department, was beaten up allegedly by some BCL men on Monday night over contesting the SM Hall union polls.
He was also ousted from the hall allegedly by BCL men for the same reason days before the March 11 Ducsu polls.
Talking to The New Nation , Farid said, "Some Chhatra League men on Monday night dragged me to the dining room of SM Hall and beat me with iron bars, sticks and cricket stumps."
