Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council (BGSRPC), the platform that came to the limelight by leading the quota reform movement, has termed the filing of case against DUCSU VP Nurul Haq and his supporters as ‘unexpected’, reports UNB.

BGSRPC leaders held a press conference at the Teachers Students Centre (TSC) of Dhaka University Sunday afternoon.

Bin Yamin Mollah, joint convener of the platform, read out a written statement where they criticised Dhaka University proctor AKM Golam Rabbani for his failure to protect students.

Bin Yamin said, "Bangladesh Chhatra League has created a culture of fear at educational institutions. In the latest incident, they attacked DUCSU VP and others brutally. University authorities also worked in favour of the attackers by removing the CCTV footage.”

"Now they are trying to spread panic among the general students by filing cases,” Yamin said.

“As the DU proctor did not take any step to save the attacked students and even talked in favour of the attackers, we demand immediate resignation of the proctor,” he added.

DUCSU social welfare secretary Akhter Hossain, the only member of the platform (apart from Nurul) to be elected onto the DUCSU executive committee, also attended the press conference.
