Teacher assault: Students besiege Brac University

Students today besieged Brac University over demands of a fair probe into allegations of assault on a teacher, who was said to have been manhandled by authorities.

They put building 1 and 2 under lock and key around 3:15pm today amid rain, on the third day of their protest that has been a peaceful demonstration so far.

Last reported, hundreds of students took position on the Mohakhali-Gulshan road without halting road transport and not allowing any staffs or teachers to exit the buildings.

Until today they were staging sit-ins, before authorities denied to negotiate the inclusion of student-selected teachers into the probe body formed yesterday to investigate into the allegation.

They were demanding removal of three officials — Registrar Sahool Afzal, Assistant Registrar Mahi Uddin and a senior co-curricular officer Jabed Rasel for alleged assault on law department teacher Farhaan Uddin Ahmed.

They also demanded to the authorities concerned for reinstatement of teacher, Farhaan Ahmed, who was terminated on Sunday.
