Kabi Sufia Kamal Hall
Three residential students of Dhaka University’s Kabi Sufia Kamal Hall, who were forced out of the dormitory early Friday ‘for spreading rumour on Facebook’, returned to their dormitory.
Hall Provost Prof Sabita Rizwana Rahman said on Friday night, "All three of them were brought back. Two students returned to the hall in the noon, and one in the afternoon."
In the afternoon, two of them took part in Sufia Kamal Hall in inter-soccer competition at the central playground of the university.
As the university authorities’ decision triggered widespread criticism and protests on the campus they asked the three students to return to their dormitory.
They are Sharmin Shuvo, a second-year student, Parvin, a fourth-year student of Mathematics department and Kamrunnahar Liza, a fourth-year student of Theatre and Performance Studies department.
Some inmates of the female dormitory were ‘forced to leave it’ early Friday. Denying the allegation, the DU authorities said three students were handed over to their families for their alleged involvement in spreading rumour through Facebook.
On April 10, some photos of a female student at Sufia Kamal Hall went viral on the social media. The victim alleged that she was tortured by some female BCL leaders for taking part in the demonstrations for quota reforms.
According to some students at the hall, Iffat Jahan Isha, BCL president in the hall, was allegedly assaulting three students inside her room around 12:30 am on April 10 for joining the protests.
Hearing screams of the students, Morsheda Akhtar, a fourth-year student of botany and also vice president of the BCL hall unit, rushed to Isha`s room. Finding it locked, she got angry, kicked a window of the room and cut her foot, they said.
Some photos of her wounded leg were doing the rounds on Facebook with captions that Isha had cut tendons of Morsheda`s leg.
Later, the BCL central executive committee expelled Isha on charge of ‘violating organisational discipline’ and later withdrew it as the organisation also found her innocent.
The Dhaka University authorities on Wednesday withdrew its previous order expelling Isha as its probe body found ‘no evidence of torture on a student inside the hall’ by Isha.
