Comilla University closes halls following BCL infighting

03 October 2022

Staff Reporter :
Comilla University (CoU) administration announced the closure of residential halls and postponed the upcoming examinations till further orders following clashes between two factions of the expired Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) committee.
Male students have been asked to vacate the
halls by 6:00pm on Sunday and female students by 9:00 am on Monday morning.
At the same time, all examinations have been postponed from October 10 to October 17. Entry of transport other than the University's own transport into the campus is prohibited.
According to Acting-Registrar of the university Md Amirul Haque Chowdhury, the university administration took the decision in an emergency meeting held on Sunday to bring the situation under control.
"The halls will remain closed until further notice due to the prevailing situation at the university," stated a notification issued by the university authorities.
Proctor (Acting) Kazi Omar Siddiqi said, "We will take a strong stand to bring the situation under control and create a stable environment on the campus. Besides, an investigation committee will also be formed to look into the incident."
After the dissolution of the BCL CoU unit committee, a faction of BCL staged an armed showdown on Saturday, entering the university campus with half a hundred motorbikes, which created panic among the students.
The conflict began when leaders and activists of the former committee came out of the halls with lethal weapons, sticks, and rods.
"The university will remain closed till October 9 on the occasion of Durga Puja, weekly holiday and Eid-e-Miladunnabi. The campus will open on October 10, " Vice-Chancellor AFM Abdul Moyeen said.
The Comilla University started its academic activities on May 28, 2017 with the motto of free from politics and even students need to submit forms with the undertaking that they would not hold political activities on the campus and smoking.
But when Awami League led Grand Alliance came to power in 2008, the Chhatra League began open politics on the campus. Even their infighting led to the killing of Khalid Saifullah in July 2016.
In May 2017, a partial committee was formed and later in November of the same year a 161-member full committee was formed. Most of these members did not have studentship.
The committee tenure expired in 2018.
