JCD calls indefinite strike from today at IU

Staff Correspondent - January 21st, 2013

The IU unit of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal, pro-BNP student body, on Saturday called an indefinite strike from Monday (January 21) at the university demanding removal of the proctor and the student adviser, and release of its nine leaders and activists arrested on Thursday.
Their demand also included of punishment those involved in attacking on teachers in two consecutive times.
General Secretary of IU unit JCD Rashidul Islam Rashed made the announcement at a press conference in Kushtia district BNP office in the afternoon. He said no transport of the university would be available from Monday.
The JCD leader alleged that present administration is sheltering the BCL in the campus and giving opportunity to continue their misdeeds.
Rashed alleged that Chhatra League activists on Thursday attacked a peaceful procession of JCD that was demanding arrest and punishment of those who had attacked the teachers. At least 15 JCD activists were injured in the incident.
“The Chhatra League opened fire on us snatching a shotgun from police, but none has been arrested in this connection,” said Rashed.
