A scuffle between some protesting Dhaka University students, demanding student representatives in the senate for the Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) elections, and members of the university’s proctorial body took place on Saturday. The scuffle took place in front of the DU's Senate building following slogans by some students that a vice chancellor election without DUCSU elections was illegal. Footage shows the scuffle ensued when members of the university's proctorial body tried to stop them. Students then broke the lock on the Senate building's gates and occupied the central square in front of the building. The situation was later brought under control by the intervention of the university's proctor Amzad Hossain.
