Six students sustained serious injuries

Several students of Jahangirnagar University were injured in an attack by residents of a village adjacent to the campus in Savar on Friday, reports UNB.

JU's acting proctor ASM Firoz Ul Hasan said the clash erupted following a dispute over a cricket match.

Six students, who sustained serious injuries, received first aid from the university's medical centre in the evening.

Four motorcycles belonging to the students were set ablaze by locals at Gerua Bazar in the evening. Later, locals gathered in the area responding to an announcement from a mosque's loudspeaker and assaulted the students.

Hasan said some students were confined at their mess in Gerua village.

"Police have taken control of the situation," he said, adding that the situation was tense.

No case has been filed as of filing the report.
