The staff went on strike on Thursday noon demanding more facilities while students joined them protesting against recruitment tests scheduled to be held on Bangabandhu’s Homecoming Day.
At one stage, they confined Vice-Chancellor Matiar Rahman Howlader at his office. He was freed around 12:30am on Friday after he assured the protesters of meeting their demands.
Badrul Islam Shoeb, registrar of the university, told the protesters that the authorities postponed the written tests. Besides, demands raised by the university staff will be met gradually.
Later, the public relations office of the university issued a handout in this regard.
