Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) vice chancellor Satya Prasad Majumder has said the university administration agrees to the demands of the students and it requires time to follow due process to meet the demands.

The BUET VC made the remarks while talking to newsmen at his office on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier just before half an hour, BUET students ended their demonstration today, Saturday. They declared that they would boycott all academic activities, including term final exams scheduled to be held on Sunday.

They demanded of identifying those involved and ensuring their punishment; the administration has to issue a written notice for legal action against the entry of outsider political persons into the campus and implement it; resignation of the directorate of students' welfare (DSW) for failing to discharge duties; a written undertaking about not taking any action to harass the demonstrating students.

BUET students demonstrated for the second day to press home their five-point demand, following a gathering of leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League, on the BUET campus on Wednesday midnight, where student politics is banned.

They alleged some outsider leaders and activists on Wednesday night entered the BUET campus and conducted political activities despite a ban on student politics after the murder of Abrar Fahad.

Civil Engineering department’s student Imtiaz Rabbi, BCL central committee member, is the main organiser of this political gathering.

The BUET campus was turbulent on Friday as the students registered a big protest.

The students demonstrated for five hours from 2:30pm to 8:00pm at a stretch placing a five-point demand.
