Staff Correspondent: Students and teachers of the Mass Communication and Journalism department of Dhaka University (DU) on Wednesday formed a human chain at the foot of 'Aparajeyo Bangla' around noon protesting the manhandling of DU teacher Fahmidul Haq.

Yesterday, police manhandled DU teacher Fahmidul in Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka when they along with a group of citizens tried to stage a peaceful protest against the attacks on the students demanding quota reform in civil service.

Gitiara Nasrin, professor of Mass Communication and Journalism Department, Fahmidul Haq, professor of the department, Rushad Faridi, an assistant professor of Economics department, Tanjim Uddin Khan, an associate professor of Department of International Relations and teachers from other departments took part in the human chain.

Gitiara Nasrin said, “Every citizen has the right to express concern over any issue. The government is curbing our right to speech. Not only this, those who have protested at various times are being attacked.”

She also demanded a fair investigation into the incident and sought trial for those involved in the incident.
