A case has been filed against Jahangirnagar University Chhatra Union President Amartya Roy and General Secretary Riddha Anindya Ganguly for drawing anti-rape graffiti over Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s portrait on the campus.

JU Chief Security Officer Sudipto Shahin filed the case on behalf of the university with Ashulia police station on Thursday.

"According to the decision of the university syndicate, the case has been filed under state law. I have completed the work on filing the case,” said Shahin.

Earlier on February 20, the university administration suspended them for one year at a special syndicate meeting.

On February 7, a faction of the university's Chhatra Union (Amartya Roy-Riddha Anindya) reportedly painted anti-rape graffiti by removing Bangabandhu's portrait on the wall of the new arts building of the university.

Protesting the incident, two Chhatra League leaders went on a hunger strike for four consecutive days on February 15, demanding the highest punishment for those involved.

University Vice Chancellor Prof Md Nurul Alam met the strikers on February 18 and assured them of punishment for those involved.
