Aug 22 CU Incident

6 people give depositions

Six people gave depositions before the probe committee formed to investigate into the August 22 incident on Chittagong University (CU) campus on the second day of giving deposition yesterday.
However, Arts Faculty Dean Prof Mansur Uddin Ahmed, head of the four-member committee, opted for keeping the names and identities of the witnesses a secret and refused to disclose anything about the findings before the completion of the investigation.
"We have circulated notice to all the departments asking the interested teachers, officers and employees of the university to give witnesses in the second phase on Thursday and Saturday next," Prof Mansur said.
"We would try to submit the report within a month, but absence of students is hampering our progress," he said.
At least 40 students, teachers and policemen were injured in a clash between the students and police on August 22 on the university campus where some outsiders allegedly took part.
Following the incident, CU authorities formed a four-member committee on that day.
Other members of the committee are Law Faculty Dean Mohammad Zakir Hossain, Prof Mokter Ahmed of Botany department and Assistant Proctor Mohammad Shafiqul Islam.
