Nilkhet protest

Seven DU-affiliated college students took streets

On Sunday, October 8, students of seven colleges affiliated with Dhaka University  took to the streets to press home their five-point demand, including withdrawal of a police case against 1,200 of their fellow students and publication of their year-end exam results, blocking the New Market-Nilkhet intersection.

Students from the affiliated colleges — Dhaka College, Eden Mohila College, Government Shaheed Suhrawardi College, Kabi Nazrul Government College, Begum Badrunnesa Government Women College, Mirpur Government Bangla College and Government Titumir College — took position on the street at 9am for demonstration.

The agitating students demanded that the case filed against 1,200 students of the seven colleges be withdrawn, exam results of second- and fourth-year students be published, announcement of the exam schedule for third year, a new academic calendar and a separate website for all the seven colleges.

Earlier on July 20, Shahbagh police filed the attempt to murder case against the 1,200 students following a police-student clash in which a student of Government Titumir College were injured and lost his eye sight.

A few of the students temporarily left the protest after interim DU vice-chancellor prof Md Akhtaruzzaman assured them that their demands would be met, but they went back to the protest after a while.




On Monday, October 9, the Centre for Enterprise and Society and D-Net organised a workshop on emotional intelligence for entrepreneurship at University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh campus.




On Monday, October 9, a two-day long orientation programme was organised by United International University to welcome the students of the school of business and economics and school of science and engineering.
