Buet student took to the streets following the death of Abrar Fahad
Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) Directorate of Students' Welfare (DSW) Director Mizanur Rahman has said Vice Chancellor Prof Saiful Islam could not come to the campus due to "illness."
He made the statement after meeting demonstrating students at the Central Shaheed Minar on Dhaka University campus on Tuesday morning.
The Buet official arrived at the Central Shaheed Minar just few hours after the agitated students threatened to lay seize on main roads, if the VC and DSW fails to meet them by 5pm on Tuesday.
Mentioning he does not have jurisdiction to fulfill all of their demands, the Buet official said: “I can only place and discuss the demands with authority.”
Mizanur also assured students that the university authority will consider if the students apply for a ban on student politics.
