The left ear of Madhusudan Dey’s sculpture, placed in front of the iconic cafeteria named after him on Dhaka University (DU) campus, has been fixed after being damaged in an unknown event.

Speaking to Dhaka Tribune on Thursday, DU Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani said the broken ear of the sculpture was fixed as soon as the authorities learned that it had been damaged.

He, however, could not confirm how the sculpture was damaged or whether it was intentionally vandalized.

 “We are looking into the matter to find out what happened,” he said.

The bust of Madhusudan Dey, popularly known as Madhu Da, was erected in 1995. He was killed by Pakistan occupation forces on the night of March 25, 1971 during the infamous Operation Searchlight.

Located between the university's Faculty of Arts building and the Institute of Business Administration (IBA), the cafeteria, popularly known as "Madhur Canteen," has been the epicentre of the nation’s major movements.
