BCL indefinite strike paralyses CU
Regular academic activities of Chittagong University (CU) remained suspended for the second day after a faction of Bangladesh Chhatra League enforced an indefinite strike. The accused Chhatra League leaders sued in the Diaz murder case enforced the indefinite strike on Tuesday. The strikers vowed to continue their protests until Anwar Hossain, former assistant proctor, and assistant professor of Sociology department at Chittagong University, was released. A Chittagong court ordered for the former assistant proctor to be sent to jail on Monday in the Diaz murder case. Shahab Uddin, station master of Sholoshahar Railway Station, said the strikers intercepted a university-bound shuttle train at Jhautala area around 7:30am. Liton Mitra, assistant proctor of Chittagong University, said that no buses carrying teachers could enter the university premises as the strikers padlocked the main entrance of the campus. There was also no service on the shuttle train, the university’s main transportation. Earlier on Sunday, the accused Chhatra League leaders, after holding a press conference at Chittagong Press Club, threatened to go for tougher programs on the university campus if the case against them was not withdrawn immediately. Pleading innocence, they requested the university authorities to take steps against the false and fabricated case. Former joint secretary of CU Chhatra League unit and assistant secretary of central Chhatra League, Diaz Irfan Chowdhury, was found dead in his flat near Chittagong Universitygate no 2 area under Hathazari police station on November 20 last year. Police recovered his hanging body from his bedroom but are yet to determine the exact cause behind the death. The family alleged that the body was hanged after he was killed. His cell phone was missing, they said. His legs were seen touching the bed, creating suspicion over whether it was a suicide. Diaz's mother alleged that a teacher who holds an administrative post at CU and one of the top leaders of Chhatra League unit masterminded the murder. She said that her son was murdered because of a rivalry among Chhatra League leaders centring a university tender.
