DU students demand end to bullying, harassment in guestrooms

Dhaka University (DU) students Thursday demanded that the authority takes action to banish the practice of bullying and harassment in the guestrooms of its dormitories.

Some students of DU's 2020-21 session staged a demonstration in the evening, forming a human chain in front of the Anti-Terrorism Raju Memorial Sculpture.

They demanded justice for Aktarul Islam Liton, a fresher of the mass communication and journalism department, who fell senseless in a guest room as a result of ragging yesterday.

Hassan Enam, a student of the Islamic history department, said: "The culture of abuse, humiliation, and harassment of first-year residential students by the senior students at guest rooms has to end."

Nafisa Islam Sakafi, a student of the philosophy department, said: "The studentship of those who tortured our classmate Akhtar should be cancelled. We want the administration to take action to stop the practice of abuse at guestrooms."

Rifat Rashid, a student of the international relations department, said: "Many of us cannot afford to stay outside the dormitories. But we are being tortured and humiliated through this so-called guestroom culture."
