BRAC students start hunger strike

PV Desk : A group of BRAC University students has started a hunger strike demanding punishment to the security guards who attacked them during protests against the university officials allegedly involved in an assault on a teacher.

Seven students were seen sitting in front of the building-1 of the private university at Mohakhali around 11am on Thursday.

They are Kamrun Nahar Dana, Ashik Ishtiaq, Sheikh Noman Pervez, Sadia Afrin Prema, Akash Ahmed, Yasinur Rahman Rony and Saad Ziaul Hasan.

This fresh spell of protest against the security guards comes in addition to an ongoing agitation by the students against the university registrar and two other officials who allegedly assaulted a law department teacher.
