The university authorities also decided to take assistance from the law enforcement agencies to detect and drive out outsiders from the campus and residential halls.

The authorities of Dhaka University (DU) are considering placing security checkpoints at all entry points of the campus to make it off-limits to outsiders, DU Vice-Chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman said on Tuesday.

The decision was made following the recent agitations on the DU campus “caused in the name of quota reform movement,” the DU VC told reporters at his office.

“We will place a security checkpoint at every entry point so no outsider can stay, move or hold any activity within the campus without the permission of the authorities concerned,” he added.
