Vice Chancellor Farid Uddin Ahmad confirmed this to the media at a briefing in his residence. The VC asked the students to leave the dormitories by 12:00pm on Monday.

Meanwhile, Sirajunnesa Chowdhury hall provost Jafrin Ahmed (Liza) resigned from the post showing personal reasons.

She has been replaced by professor Nazia Chowdhury.

UNB adds: Earlier, a group of students confined vice chancellor Farid Uddin to a room during ongoing protest on the campus.

Nearly 200 female students of Begum Sirajunnesa Chowdhury dormitory continued their demonstration for the fourth consecutive day on Sunday to press home their three-point demand.

During their peaceful demonstrations, some other male students joined them and allegedly tried to assault the VC while he, along with some teachers and proctor, appeared there and assured them of meeting their demands within a week.

The students allegedly assaulted the VC in front of IICT building and confined him in a room of the building since around 3:00pm.

The students of Begum Sirajunnesa Chowdhury hall have been protesting since Thursday to have their three-point demand met by the authorities.

The demands include the removal of the hall provost Jafrin Ahmed and punishment to those who earlier attacked them. On Thursday night, students of the hall gathered outside VC's residence protesting alleged misbehaviour with them by the hall provost.
