MNA Education Desk: AKM Nur‐un‐Nabi, Vice‐Chancellor of Begum Rokeya University, who was confined to his office allegedly by some Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists on Wednesday morning, was freed after 13 hours early Thursday.

The BCL leaders freed the VC around 12:30am on Thursday after police intervention. The BCL men from two residential halls laid siege to the Syndicate conference room at 11:30am on Wednesday, confining the VC inside.

They alleged the VC was rude with them after they asked for the jobs he had promised them.

Meanwhile, the BCL central committee suspended three of its leaders – Imtiaz Basunia and Ismail Hossain, president and secretary of Shahid Mukhtar Ilahi Hall respectively and Mritish Barman, secretary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Hall over the matter.
