Jahangirnagar University was closed for an indefinite period on Tuesday after Chhatra League ‘cadres’ allegedly assaulted protesters injuring 36 teachers and students.

The agitators were demonstrating in front of the residence of vice-chancellor Farzana Islam on the campus demanding her resignation for alleged corruption.

Following an emergency syndicate meeting chaired by Farzana Islam at her registrar building office in the noon, the university authorities asked the students to vacate the student halls by Tuesday evening, reads a release issued by JU acting registrar Rahima Kaniz.

The release also requested the police authorities to deploy 300 police personnel on the campus from Tuesday night anticipating further deterioration of the situation.

The sudden decision on vacating the dormitories put in serious difficulty many general students from different districts of the country.
