The Dhaka University (DU) authorities yesterday decided to set up check posts on campus to restrict the movement of heavy vehicles aiming to ensure a safe and congenial atmosphere for its students.

Initially, security officials will be deployed at busy entrances to campus, including Nilkhet intersection, to monitor vehicles on the Nilkhet-TSC road from 3pm to 9pm, reports BSS.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the university proctor’s team with other university stakeholders at the Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban, with Proctor Prof AKM Golam Rabbani in the chair.

Representatives from the Bangladesh National Cadet Corps (BNCC), Rover Scout and Ranger unit, Estate office and Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu), Students Transport Secretary Shams E Noman, Dhaka University Journalists’ Association (Duja) General Secretary Mahdi Al Muhtasim Nibir, and assistant proctors were present at the meeting.

The meeting decided to ban the movement of heavy vehicles including lorries, oil tankers and trucks, through the campus area.

DU Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani said: “We have decided to control vehicular movement on campus to ensure student safety.”

“A combined volunteer team will be formed soon for controlling vehicles,” said Ducsu Students Transport Secretary, Shams E Noman.

“Strict measures should be taken to minimize traffic jams, muggings, drug peddling and other misdeeds on campus,” said Duja General Secretary, Mahdi Al Muhtasim Nibir. A proposal to set up check posts at every entry point of the campus, including Shahbagh, Doyel Chattar, Nilkhet, and the Palashi intersection were placed at the meeting.

The meeting also decided to check the presence of drug peddlers, muggers, and beggars on campus.
