Prime University vandalised for permanent campus

Hundreds of students of Prime University yesterday took to the streets and vandalised vehicles and furniture on its Mirpur campus in the city over setting up of a permanent campus immediately.

The agitators halted vehicular movement on the road for half an hour at Section 1 of Mirpur around 12:00pm, causing a huge tailback, said witnesses.

Mirpur police said they managed to remove the students’ barricade at 12:30pm.

The students said they were long demanding the university authorities for establishing a permanent campus, but the authorities did not take any step on the matter.

Mohammad Selim Uddin, assistant registrar of the university, said some 200-300 students staged demonstration on the campus around 12:00pm.

At one stage, they vandalised window glasses and furniture of the accounts section and two vehicles of the university, he said.
