Student drowns again in DU’s mysterious Shahidullah Hall pond

Shahidullah Hall

MNA Education Desk: A Dhaka University (DU) student drowned in the Shahidullah Hall pond on the campus on Wednesday evening.

The deceased identified as Bayezid Bostaymi, a first-year student of the Applied Statistics department and a resident of the dormitory.

The pond has created mystery among the students and gained notoriety over the years as almost every year incidents of students drowning in the pond happen, though there is a sign near it that says no swimming in the pond.

DU acting proctor AM Amzad said members of Fire Service and Civil Defence rescued Bayezid from the pond and took him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead around 7:00pm.
