Release of DU teachers, students demanded
Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) demanded release of the arrested Dhaka University (DU) teachers and students before DU reopens on October 28.
In a joint statement yesterday, CPB President Manjurul Ahsan Khan and General Secretary Mujahidul Islam Selim urged the government to bring back normalcy in the educational institutions through immediate release of the teachers and students, including Chhatra Union leader Manabendra Dev.
The leaders said despite chief adviser's assurance to keep the situation normal, arrest of Manabendra Dev and taking him for remand was totally unwanted.
The nation expected the things would be sorted out after the meeting among the teachers and the chief adviser, army chief and army chief of general staff.
But no initiatives have been taken to reopen the university, the leaders added.
