DU Correspondent :
Dhaka University (DU) authority brought back three residential students of Kabi Sufia Kamal Hall on Friday evening. They were forcibly ousted from the dormitory early Friday 'for spreading rumour on Facebook'.  
Hall Provost Prof. Sabita Rezwana Chowdhury and a residential student confirmed it to The New Nation.
The DU adminstration asked them to return to their hall within a day of ousting, as the decision triggered widespread criticism and protests on the campus.  
They are Sharmin Shuvo, a 2nd year student, Parvin, a 4th year student of Mathematics department, and Kamrunnahar Liza, a 4th year student of Theatre and Performance Studies department.
Prof. Sabita said that they returned to their dormitory by Friday night.
Denying the allegation, Prof. Sabita Rezwana said "I handed over to those students to their families for counselling as they were spreading  rumours on Facebook about different issues during quota reformation movement".  
She said, "We held a meeting on Friday night to know the condition of residential students of hall where around five thousand females attended and expressed their opinions."
Sabita Rezwana accused the vested quarter of spreading rumour on Facebook in order to mar the congenial atmosphere of dormitory though most of the students were living well.
Wishing anonymity, a student of Sufia Kamal Hall told this correspondent "We have talked with provost on Friday night about several problems in the dormitory. None did express their opinion about Facebook rumour or latest incident."  
Earlier, Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Forum sought removal of the hall chief and gave 24 hours ultimatum to authority to bring back those students with dignity.
