On Sunday, leaders and activists of Jahangirnagar University Chhatra Dal (BNP’s student wing) locked several faculties at the campus on 1st day of BNP’s 48-hour nationwide blockade. Shortly after, a proctorial team hurried there and unlocked the gates, according to on-campus reports.
“We did this to bolster the current blockade by BNP. 7-8 activists including the campus JCD leader Mazharul Amin Tamal, Salman Ahmed and Mehdi Hasan were there,” said Mizanur Rahman, an activist of the Ju CD unit and a student of the 2014-15 academic session. BCL’s JU unit president Akhtaruzzaman Sohel said, “Chattra Dal is carrying out the activity like thieves, but students are not behind them. The students stood against this by breaking down the locks.”
