Khulna University: Students call off movement following assurance

UNB, Khulna :

Students of Khulna University called off their movement in the early hours of Wednesday after authorities assured them of meeting their demands.

The university authorities on Tuesday afternoon issued a notice to seize all sorts of items, including electronic devices, rice cookers and knives, after a female student of Aparajita Hall attempted suicide by slitting her throat with a chopper.

Following the announcement, the students broke open the lock of the hall and took position in front of the dormitory’s main gate to press home their 10-point demand around 10pm.

Expressing solidarity with the movement, students from other halls started gathering at Hadi Chattor and continued with the protest until the university authorities assured them of fulfilling their demands around 2am.

Later, the agitating students submitted their 10-point demand to the authorities.

The major demands included lifting the ban on the use of rice cookers and other utensils, amnesty for students who raise voice against sexual harassment on social media, and allowing guardians and female relatives to stay in the halls.

The students also made it clear to the university authorities that they would go for a stricter movement "if our demands are met at the earliest".

Rahima Rimmi, provost of Aparajita Hall, said that the authorities would meet all the demands of the students.
