Several students of Dhaka University (DU) formed a human chain protesting countrywide attacks on the university’s students amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, stressing the recent attack on Dhaka University Journalists' Association (DUJA) General Secretary HM Imran.
Students, including the leaders and activists of different student bodies, under the banner “General Students of Dhaka University” formed a human chain on Thursday at the base of anti-terrorism Raju memorial sculpture in the campus.
Speakers from the human chain demanded exemplary punishment for the perpetrators who carried out an attack on journalist leader HM Imran in Jhenaidah for protesting against corruption of a local Union Parishad member who was trying to take sacrificial meat for himself which were meant for the underprivileged.
Imran is also the DU correspondent of United News of Bangladesh (UNB).
Protesting students also demanded justice for Chhatra League leader Sayeed Khan Shawon in Sylhet, Sazzad Hossain Shihab in Cox's bazar, and demanded the authorities to introduce an emergency helpline to ensure security of the students.
