A large number of students of the university expressed their solidarity with the ongoing strike.  Among the students, Puja Biswash, Sarder Zahid and Tahmina Jahan Tuli became ill while they were under doctor’s supervision.

Meanwhile, a group of students under the banner of ‘Protibader Nam Jahangirnagar’ placed a four- point demand through a press conference around at 3pm held on the JU Central Shaheed Minar premises.   They also announced to organise a big rally today (Tuesday) as a part of their protest.

Meanwhile, pro-Awami back teachers’ unity demanded the exemplary punishment to those responsible for ‘vandalising’ JU VC’s house and assaulting teachers.  Raising the demands, under the banner ‘Bangabandhur Adorsho O Muktijuddher Chetonay Biswashi Progotishil Shikkhok Shomaj’ they brought out a silent procession at 1pm from Social Science Faculty which paraded different streets on the campus and ended at JU Registrar building.
