Foundation stone of new Shaheed Minar laid at CU

The foundation stone of a new Shaheed Minar was laid at Chittagong University yesterday.

CU Vice Chancellor (VC) Prof Iftekhar Uddin Chowdhury laid the foundation stone.

As controversy arose against the existing Shaheed Minar of the university, alleging that it was built in shape of a “Pakistani monument”, the CU authorities decided to build a new Shaheed Minar adjacent to the present one.

The new one will resemble Central Shaheed Minar in Dhaka. The construction will be financed by Kabir Steel Re-rolling Mill (KSRM).

A team of architects have already finalised the design for the whole project, said the VC.
