Staff Correspondent: A group of Dhaka University (DU) students have besieged the office of Dhaka University vice-chancellor demanding reelections of Ducsu.

The agitating students took a rally to the administrative building and started sit-in program in front of VC office on Monday.

Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, leftist student bodies’ alliance Pragatishil Chhatra Oikya, Swadhikar Swatantra Parishad, Independent Alliance and Chhatra Federation joined the demonstration. They have also boycotted university class and examinations.

“We came to VC sir before and after the elections, with various complaints. Sir told us to file complaints in written format. Sir didn’t pay heed to us we filed complaints though,” said Aroni Semonti Khan, who ran for VP post from Independent Alliance.

“People from the entire country know that vote rigging took place in the Mar 11 elections,” said ARM Asifur Rahman, who contested for GS post.
