Dhaka: The authorities of Dhaka University have denied their previous order that restricts outsiders' entry into the campus and said they never banned outsiders from entering into the DU campus.

A DU press release on Wednesday put the blame on media for, what it said, creating misunderstanding among people by publishing misleading information. DU release also made an urge to the media not to inspire evil forces by misinformation in their news, reports the UNB.

Interestingly, the new DU stance came in two days its issuing earlier release on July 9 saying that outsiders would not be allowed to roam around, stay in dorms and hold any kind of activity on the Dhaka University campus without permission from the authorities.

Taking permission for holding any programme and activities at campus is not anything new and security guards are always stationed at entry points, today's release further reads.
