Students of Chittagong University yesterday formed a human chain demanding a safe campus for them. Under the banner of “Anthropology Department”, students formed the human chain in front of CU Shaheed Minar around noon.
15 students of the university were injured, one of them critically, in an attack allegedly carried out by a group of robbers while they were visiting a forest near the campus on Saturday. Students claimed that robberies have now become common on the campus. They claimed that such incidents are increasing day by day as the administration failed to bring the culprits to book.
They demanded to identify and punish the ones involved in the robbery. They further urged the university administration to bear the treatment expenses of critically injured student Anwar and demanded security for the students.
Meanwhile, police detained two persons while conducting a drive on the spot of the incident.
