22 pvt univ students in jail

Denying bail to them, a court here on Thursday sent 22 private university students to jail in two cases filed over vandalism and attacks on police, reports UNB. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Shikder passed the order after police produced them before his court on expiry of their two-day remand, rejecting bail petitions filed by their lawyers. Earlier on August 7, another court here placed them on the remand. The accused are students of East West Univer-sity, North South University, South East University and Brac University. On Monday, students of the private universities clashed with police while demonstrating against the attack on students during their movement for safe roads in the city. Meanwhile, students and guardians arranged a candle lighting programme at TSC of Dhaka University on Thursday evening demanding release of the arrested students.
