RU reopens March 10

Bans rallies, marches

RU Correspondent

The Rajshahi University (RU) syndicate yesterday decided to reopen the university on March 10 and dormitories at 9:00am the day before following an over a one-month closure over the February 2 violence on the campus.
The decision came following a press conference of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) at the central cafeteria around 1:00pm urging for the reopening. The authorities also banned processions, rallies and use of megaphones for an indefinite period, said a RU press release.
On February 2, over 100 general students were injured after police and BCL men fired at their demonstrations against the authorities' decision to hike fees and continue evening master's programmes.
