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 10am.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Her suspension order was revoked on Wednesday following widespread protests.
