The two leaders, Mohammad Touhidul Islam Chowdhury Zahir and Shahriar Kabir Biddut, are both vice presidents of the ruling party’s student wing
Two central leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League have reportedly clashed over a trifle matter of riding in the car of the organization’s president, Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon.
The two leaders — Mohammad Touhidul Islam Chowdhury Zahir and Shahriar Kabir Biddut — are both vice presidents of the ruling party’s student wing.
Biddut was taken to the Dhaka University Medical Centre (DUMC) for initial treatment after the scuffle took place in front of the university’s Madhur Canteen on Tuesday.
Eyewitnesses said Zahir, along with some other central leaders, got in the back seat of the car, while Biddut failed to get a place.
Shovon ordered his men to leave the vehicle as an altercation began between Zahir and Biddut.
Zahir and Biddut soon started hitting each other with brickbats and bamboo sticks. Shovon hurried to the scene and restrained them, eyewitnesses said.
Biddut, while being treated at DUMC, said: “I had issues with his ideologies. And that was the reason for the disturbance. There was no reason for hitting each other."
Zahir denied the allegation of hitting each other.
Chhatra League President Shovon said the incident was nothing but a personal conflict between them.
