Human chain seeking cancellation of DU Gha unit intake test
Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council formed a human chain at Raju memorial monument at Dhaka University demanding cancellation of ‘Gha’ unit admission test of Dhaka University.
They platform organised protest extending its support to Dhaka University law student Akhtar Hossain who is continuing his solitary hunger strike for the second straight third day on Thursday. The result was published on Tuesday.
Akhtar Hossen, a third-year student of law department, began the hunger strike in front of Raju memorial monument at TSC on the campus, three hours before the publication of the admission test results.
Dhaka University vice-chancellor Md Akhtaruzzaman while publishing the result of Gha unit admission test had admitted that there was a ‘digital forgery’ during the admission tests, but published the results anyway, which saw the unit's highest pass rate in the last five years.
Akhtar also demanded punishment to those who were involved in the “question leak” and appropriate measures from the authorities to stop such incidents in future.
