Two 'missing' IU students still untraced

Two Islamic University (IU) students, who allegedly went missing on the night of February 4, are yet to be traced.
They are Al Mukaddas of al fiqh department and Md Waliullah of daw'ah and Islamic studies department. Mukaddas is the cultural secretary of Shibir IU unit while Waliullah finance secretary of the unit, Shibir sources said.
Some unidentified people picked up the two from a bus at Nabinagar in Savar while they were returning to Kushtia from the capital on the night, sources added.
Police said Mukaddas and Waliullah were among the 26 accused in a case filed with Islamic University Police Station following a clash between Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) and Chattra Shibir on the campus on October 25 last year.
Tareq Monowar, president of Shibir IU unit, said all the 26 accused obtained bail from the High Court.
Contacted, Vice-Chancellor Prof M Alauddin said they have already informed the top police officials of the matter and urged them to take necessary measures in this regard.
Students of four departments under the Faculty of Theology and Islamic Studies at the university have been boycotting their classes and examinations since February 14 protesting, what they said, police failure to rescue the two missing students.
Wearing black badges, the students hold rallies and processions on the campus every day. They also formed several human chains on the campus in the last four days to press home the demand.
