'Cases filed over Ducsu incident to harass our members'
Bangladesh Sadharan Chhatra Adhikar Sangrakkhan Parishad today alleged that the cases filed over the attack on Ducsu Vice President Nurul Haque Nur and his supporters, are to harass their members.
These cases were filed much like the way cases were filed following the quota reform movement to harass the protesters, the student body members alleged.
They came up with the allegation at a press conference held at the TSC on Dhaka University campus this noon.
Bin Yamin Mollah, joint convener of the platform read out the written statement where they criticised DU Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani for his failure to protect students.
The leaders of the parishad also expressed their solidarity to the protest of Indian students against CAA and NRC.
