Agitated students on Saturday gathered before the Sylhet's Murari Chand (MC) College to protest Friday night’s heinous gang rape incident inside the college premise.

Protesters under the banner “General Students” congregated outside the college main gate and began observing their demonstration since 12pm.

During the protest, the students burned tires and obstructed the Sylhet-Tamabil Highway which halted vehicular movement completely.

Police personnel were deployed to avoid any untoward situation in the area.

The students withdrew from their demonstration after an hour at 1pm after receiving assurances from college principal Saleh Ahmed of exemplary punishment for all those involved in the heinous crime.

Saleh Ahmed said a three-member committee has already been formed by the college authority to ensure a proper investigation into the incident.
