Bangladesh Sadharon Chhatra Odhikar Songrokkhon Parishad leaders said it in a press conference in front of DU central library on Wednesday afternoon (May 16).

The agitators also sought help from the government and university administration as Shahbagh police refused to take general diary (GD) about death threats from BCL.

The protesters alleged that a group of 15-20 BCL men led by the AL student wing’s outgoing central committee vice-president Imtiaz Bulbul Bappi, general secretary of Mohsin Hall branch BCL general secretary Mehedi Hasan Sani, Faculty of Fine Arts Faculty of BCL General Secretary Fahim Islam Limon gave death threats to quota movement Joint convener Nurul Haque Noor and Rashed Khan at room-119 of Haji Mohammad Mohsin hall.

At the press conference, Nurul Haque Noor said police denied taking the GD saying ‘they need time’. We condemn such move by the law enforcers. 

He also said quota protesters are receiving threats from different quarters from the beginning of the movement. The movement will continue till government publishes gazette abolishing the quota system in public services as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had announced earlier.
