SUST Press Club organised the campaign around 12 noon in front of Central Library Building which will be continued till Sunday, said the organisation's Office Secretary Abdullah Al Monsur.
President and general secretary of Shahjalal University TeachersÕ Association Professor Shamsul Alam and Associate Professor Mohibul Alam respectively signed to press home for the demands.
The organization has been continuing movement from Sunday while journalists associations in public universities formed separate human chains over the demand.
The university authority, however,  vowed to take strong action against the culprits soon upon receiving the probe body report. Sarder Abbas, the district correspondent of the Daily Observer, and Syed Nabiul Alam Dipu, the university correspondent of the daily Sakaler Khabor, came under attack on April 8 as they were inquiring into an incident of harassing a female student and her cousin allegedly by the BCL activists on the campus.
