University authorities have assured them of meeting their four-point demand

The Chittagong University (CU) unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League has called off its strike following assurances from the authorities concerned of fulfilling their demands.

Liton Mitra, assistant proctor of Chittagong University, told Dhaka Tribune that the strike was withdrawn at 6pm on Monday.

The strike was launched to press home Chhatra League’s four-point demand, including the release of six of their activists from jail and the withdrawal of cases filed against them, withdrawing all political cases filed against CU Chhatra League activists since 2015, and removing CU Proctor Asgar Ali and Hathazari police station OC Belaluddin Jahangir.

Earlier on Monday morning, Chhatra League leaders and activists continued their protest on campus for a second consecutive day.

With the strike, no university-bound shuttle train left the station on Monday, Sholoshahar Railway Station Master Tonmoy Chowdhury told Dhaka Tribune.

The shuttle train service was suspended on Sunday as well, which disrupted all academic activities at the university as many students were unable to attend classes. 

On Sunday, a Chhatra League faction clashed with the police while staging demonstrations on the university campus. They also put up barricades on the rail tracks and abducted the locomotive master of the shuttle train that left Sholoshahar Railway Station on Sunday morning.
