Rangpur medical students go on strike

Students of Rangpur Medical College went on an indefinite strike yesterday afternoon to press home their eight-point demand.

Rangpur Medical University, Rangpur, Bangladesh: Students called the strike after criminals beat up one of their fellows at a hostel.

The demands include setting up of a permanent police camp on the campus and closed circuit cameras at all dormitories, arrest of the attackers and restriction on outsiders' entry into the campus, and steps to ensure security of the students and doctors.

Campus sources said a group of outsiders entered Dr Mukta Hostel and started beating Nazmul Hasan Rishad in his room No 9 around 1:00pm.
They also took away a laptop, a mobile phone set and money from Rishad.
Protesting the incident, the general students took out a procession on the campus and held a rally at the administrative building where they vowed to continue their strike until the demands are met.
Officer in-charge of Kotwali Police Station Abdul Kader Zilani confirmed the incident. He, however, said no case was filed in this connection.
