A day after a clash between two groups of Chhatra League at Satkhira Medical College, the authorities asked all the students to vacate the halls on Tuesday.                               

The decision was taken at the academic council of the medical college on Tuesday at 12pm.  The order was issued in a notification signed by the college's Principal, Prof Dr Ruhul Kuddus.

Prince Saha, vice-president of Chhatra League of the Medical College unit, was injured in a clash between two factions that ensued on Monday over declaring the newly elected Chhatra League President Abdul Muhith and General Secretary Tanvir Ahmed, unwanted on the college premises.

On March 27, the college authorities suspended the internship of Chhatra League leader Abdul Muhith for two months over vandalism and showdown on the campus the night before the 12th parliamentary election.

On March 29, the new committee of Satkhira Medical College Chhatra League was announced. Abdul Muhith and Tanvir Ahmed were made president and general secretary of the committee.

Since the committee's announcement, the leaders and activists of the two groups have been in a face-to-face position. At one stage, President Abdul Muhith and General Secretary Tanvir Ahmed were declared unwanted by the leaders and activists of the rival group.

Bost sides took position on the campus on Monday and clashed, leaving several people, including Chhatra League Vice-President Prince Saha, injured.

According to the decision of the academic council, the students were asked to leave the halls by 2:30pm on Tuesday to avoid any untoward incident.
