JnU students stage demo for dorms in Dhaka jail area

Jagannath University students demonstrated this morning demanding residential dormitories in the Dhaka jail area, now that the prison has been shifted.

Alleging that the on-going militancy issue is making it difficult for bachelors to rent houses, they demanded that the government fix their housing problem.

Over a hundred students converged at Jagannath University campus and began demonstration from 9:00am. Last reported they were chanting slogans near their vice-chancellor’s office.

This month, Dhaka Central Jail has been shifted to Keraniganj – at the outskirts of the capital. Any concrete plan for the vacated Dhaja jail land is yet to be unveiled.
