North South University VC besieged

A group of North South University students on Sunday afternoon besieged its Vice-Chancellor Professor Atiqul Islam and other officials to press home their six-point demand.

Eralier on the day, the protesting students staged a sit-in programme on the campus demanding waiver in tuition fees in the upcoming Fall-2020 semester due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They demanded cancellation of all student activities fees -- like computer lab fee, library fees and others -- as authorities are holding classes online and they have no scope to use the campus facilities.

The protesting students set the date of October 22 to fulfill their demand as the new semester will start from the day.

The students staged the sit-in in front of the university gate for several hours from 11:00am to press home their demands.
