The students formed a human chain in front of the main campus on Mirpur Road around 11:30 am protesting the killing. They urged to immediate arrest of the killers and ensuring justice.
“Talha was a cheerful and confident boy. He never waited around to help people,” Talha’s father Khandaker Nuruddin said, speaking at the programme.
Khandakar Abu Talha, 19, a second-year student of the university, fell prey to muggers near his home in the capital's Tikatuli on Sunday morning and lost his life having been stabbed by them.
