RU leftist leader arrested over FB post on PM, Rampal
A leftist students' organisation leader from Rajshahi University (RU) has been arrested for a Facebook status aimed at Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina over her Rampal briefing on Saturday. The university's Chhatra League unit, the ruling party affiliated organisation, also filed a case in the ICT Act against him. Dilip Roy, the general secretary of Biplobi Chhatra Maitri (Revolutionary Students' Unity) was arrested by Motihar police around 12pm Sunday from Aamtala in the campus. RU Chhatra League has also protested in the campus demanding that Dilip be expelled. Around 10am Sunday, the student leader put a public status on his Facebook profile referring to and criticising Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's statement on the Rampal power plant at a press conference on Saturday. Motihar Police Station Officer-in-Charge Humayun Kabir said RU Chhatra League President Rashedul Islam Ranju had filed the case. “We will investigate the matter and take measures accordingly,” he said. RU Chhatra League acting president Ranju said he had filed the case against Dilip for his "derogatory remarks" against Bangabandhu, the prime minister and Awami League. Progressive Students' Alliance, a group of leftist students' organisations, took out a procession in the campus after the arrest. Biplobi Chhatra Maitri President Prodip Mardi told the Dhaka Tribune the arrest was a sign of “the government's autocratic nature.” “Not all comments will go in favour of the ruling party. Some comments will go against them, but that does not mean he should be locked up and harassed,” he said.
