The Dhaka University authorities have observed mourning day on Thursday to remember the Jagannath Hall tragedy in a befitting manner.
The day is observed every year to pay homage to the memory of the students, employees, and guests, who were killed in a tragic accident in Jagannath hall on the night of October 15, 1985.
On that day the roof of the dilapidated building of the Jagannath Hall TV room caved in leaving 39 students, guests, and employees of the University dead and hundreds of others injured.
To mark the day, university authorities organized various programs and hoisted black flags atop all student dormitories, and kept the university flag at half-mast.
In the morning, students, teachers, officials, and employees of the university placed a wreath on the premises of the October Memorial Building at Jagannath Hall and a discussion was also held there.
Special prayers were also offered at Jagannath Hall and the university mosques. - BSS.
