There are no words to express the horror of yesterday night when the residence of Dhaka University Vice Chancellor came under attack during the quota-reform movement on the campus, DU VC’s wife Salma Zaman said today.
“We kept telling Sir we should leave, but he assured us that it is not a matter of the university and he would explain to them (the attackers) and they would leave,” she said while talking to reporters in the morning.
“When they were breaking the gates, I told Sir, call police, or army or BDR,” she said, but the VC refused saying that there would be bloodshed on the campus if he did so.
When the protesters managed to break in, the vice chancellor and his son tried to reason with the protesters, she said.
“I along with my daughter tried to escape and hide in a safe spot and kept praying we would make it out alive,” she added.
