CU blockaders halt train, bus services

Chittagong, Dec 19 (Just News): A section of Bangladesh Chhatra League of Chittagong University unit on Tuesday halted the teachers' bus and shuttle train service for students as part of their indefinite blockade in protest against sending a CU teacher to jail in connection with the BCL leader Diaz murder case.

On the second day of the blockade, no buses for carrying city teachers left from the campus and no train left for the campus from the port city.

However, when a train from Batali reached Jhautola station around 7 am, demonstrators blocked the railway tracks.

According to the transport office sources, the protesters locked the main gate of the university at around 4 am.

University Transport Department Administration Professor Dr Shafiul Azam said no teachers' buses left the university due to the blockade.

Sholashahar Station Master Shahab Uddin said the blockaders halted a train at Jhautola around 7:30 am in the morning. Besides, the train, scheduled to leave at 8, did not leave from the Battaloli.

The assistant proctor of Chittagong University, Anwar Hossain, was sent to jail after he surrendered before a Chittagong court on Monday in the murder case of Bangladesh Chhatra League central leader Diaz Irfan Chowdhury.

On November 20, 2016, the body of Diaz, central assistant secretary of the BCL, was found hanging from the ceiling of his room near CU.
