Dhaka University (DU) will observe Mourning Day today in memory of the victims of Jagannath Hall tragedy.

However, DU authorities are marking the day on a limited scale considering the Covid-19 situation.  The programmes include hoisting black flags at the university's main buildings, all halls and hostels at 6:00am, holding the university flag at half-mast and holding black badges, laying of wreaths and observing silence at Jagannath Hall Memorial at 7:30am under the leadership of Vice-chancellor Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman.

DU is observing October 15 as Mourning Day every year since 1985.
