Chhatra League leader harasses and assaults female student in public
A leader of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the ruling Awami League-backed student body, on Tuesday harassed and assaulted a female student on the Sirajganj Govt College campus in public as she protested his sexual assault. According to campus sources, Saddam Hossain, son of Abdul Majid at Duttapara village and former Chhatra League secretary of Sadar upazila unit, harassed the student around 2pm while she was taking part with other students at the rally of Bangladesh National Cadet Corps parading in front of BNCC camp. The victim alleged that Saddam had often tried to assault her sexually on the way when she was returning home from the college. On the day, she protested against him when he threatened to assault her sexually on campus. He got carried away and started to brutally beat her up, the victim alleged. Students of the college brought out a procession on the campus after the incident, demanding exemplary punishment of the perpetrator. Upon receiving the information, police went to the campus and arrested him around 3pm. Chhatra League President Khaled Syfullah told the Dhaka Tribune that many female students of the college had brought allegations of sexual violence against Saddam several times in the past. “But he is out of our control and also of his parents,” he added. The guardians of the victim said Saddam was a drug addict and had often harassed the victim and other women. Earlier, police arrested him on the basis of an allegation of violating female students but he was released on bail, they said. Principal SM Monwar Hossain said they were going to take steps in this regard. “We are very sorry and ashamed for such an incident on the campus,” he added. Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge Helal Uddin said: “Saddam beat up the female student while she was at a BNCC rally in uniform. We have taken the incident as a serious case.” The college authority had filed a case in this connection, the OC added.
