Chittagong University (CU) University authorities have announced to take disciplinary action against those blocking the main gate and blocking the shuttle train due to any incident.

This information was informed in a circular signed by acting registrar SM Monirul Hasan on Thursday.

Confirming the matter, acting registrar (CU) SM Monirul Hasan said, "A group of students have been blocking the main gate and shuttle train of the university for some time and are creating obstacles in the academic and administrative activities.  In this, teachers, officials, employees and locals are facing huge problems including ordinary students of the university.  From now on, if anyone does this, exemplary punishment will be taken against him.

It is mentioned in the notice that recently, students have been blocking the main gate of Chittagong University and other important offices including the transport department due to various issues.  As a result, various departments and institutes of the university are facing serious problems in organizing pre-scheduled classes, exams and seminars.  Besides, the teachers, students, officials, employees and service seekers coming to the campus for academic and official work have to face a lot of problems.

This tarnishes the image of the university and hinders the steps taken to make the university session free.  If any student or outsider of this university disrupts the academic and administrative activities of the university or creates obstacles, then the university authorities will take appropriate disciplinary action against those concerned for involvement in anti-disciplinary activities.

This year alone, Chhatra League has locked the main gate many times in the name of protest march and sit-in program.  Apart from this, the protestors created an anarchic situation in the academic and administrative activities of the university by blocking the shuttle train, kidnapping the train driver and locking the transport department.
