Ruqayyah Hall girls call off hunger strike


DHAKA, March 14, 2019 (BSS) – Left leaning students of Dhaka University Ruqayyah Hall called off their hunger strike tonight giving 24-hour ultimatum to announce reelection of the hall union polls and withdrawal of cases filed against.

“They put off their hunger strike programme after we have requested them to withdraw it for security concern,” DU proctor Professor Golam Rabbani told reporters.

Some five to six girls of the dormitory were on hunger-strike from Wednesday.
