Writ seeks ban on student politics, ragging at all educational institutions

A writ petition has been filed with the High Court seeking an order on the government to ban students and teachers’ politics and ragging at all educational institutions including private universities across the countries.

Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akond submitted the petition on Sunday morning.

In the petition, he also requested the HC to direct the authorities concerned of the government to ensure security of the students at the institutions.

A total of 13 people, including the education, home and cabinet secretaries, and the vice chancellors of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka University, Jagannath University Jahangirnagar University and Chittagong University were made respondents to the writ.

In the writ, Akand also pleaded to the High Court to direct the government to give compensation to slain Buet student Abrar Fahad, who was beaten to death allegedly by some Bangladesh Chhatra League men at a university’s hall on October 7.
