1 dead as Chhatra League opens fire on City University students
A unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League opened fire on students in Savar on Monday afternoon, killing one and injuring seven. The attack created unrest in the area, causing students to protest and clash with the police which further injured at least 50 more students. According to several students of City University situated in Savar, two students called Sayeed and Bappi had a row about seniority on Sunday. The two had resolved the matter between themselves there and then. Bappi and Sayeed were set to meet again on Monday to come to another resolution when a Shaon, leader of Ashulia sadar Chhatra League unit, arrived on campus with 40-45 men on about 20 motorbikes. The Ashulia BCL leader had come to support Bappi in the parlay, but he and his men opened fire on the students, according to several student testimonies. Sifat Hossain, 22, a student of textile engineering, was shot along with eight other. Doctors pronounced him dead when Sifat was taken to a hospital. Another student, Basudev, is reported to be critically injured, according to Dr Nazim Hossain, director of Enam Medical College and Hospital. When other students caught wind of the attack, they took to the roads set up a blockade. Hundreds of vehicles and shops were vandalised. The City University students also seize two BCL men with two motorbikes, which they promptly torched. When the students blocked the Ashulia-Kolma road, members of the Rapid Action Battalion and Savar police attempted to disperse them. The law enforcement agencies clashed with the students, which injured at least 50 students. Police arrested the two BCL men captured by the students and detained them at Savar Model Police Station. Officer-in-Charge (Detective Branch) Abdul Awal confirmed the police had arrested two outsiders who attacked the university campus. He said everyone involved in the attack will be brought to justice swiftly. OC Awal also said that additional police has been deployed in Savar to prevent the situation from escalating again.
