Beef up security at dormitories

RU female students demand

Students of five female halls of Rajshahi University (RU) yesterday demanded immediate measures to beef up security at their dormitories in the wake of an incident of theft at Tapasi Rabeya Hall.
They also threatened to launch a tougher movement if the RU authorities fail to make public the investigation report on the incident.
On Tuesday, a thief sneaked into Tapasi Rabeya Hall and stole three mobile phones and a gold chain of resident students. The thief also injured a female student during the incident.
The RU authorities had formed a five-member committee headed by Prof Golam Kabir to investigate the incident and asked it to submit report by February 24.
Monira Sharmin Prithu told reporters that RU authorities had earlier formed several committees to investigate various issues relating to women's halls, but no committees made their reports public.
"We demand removal of hall super, staffs and night guard for their negligence, payment of compensation to the students concerned, beefed-up security at the halls and installation of alarm systems at the halls for female students," said Jahan, a student of Tapashi Rabeya Hall.
When contacted, probe committee convener Prof Golam Kabir said he submitted the report to Vice Chancellor Prof Altaf Hossain at his office in the afternoon.
