Authorities given 24 hours ultimatum to arrest RU journo assaulters
Rajshahi-based journalists have issued a 24-hour ultimatum to the authorities to arrest the Chhatra League leaders in a case filed over assaulting The Daily Star correspondent at the Rajshahi University. They made the announcement at a human chain formed in front of the university’s central library at 12pm on Tuesday. A group of RU Chhatra League leaders including RU Chhatra League Vice-President Ahmed Sajib, Organising Secretary Abid Hasan Labon and Law Secretary Saiful Islam Bijoy and Research and Information Secretary Kanon assaulted Arafat for taking photos while they were vandalising a bus of Desh Travels on Monday. A case was filed against the four Chhatra League leaders mentioned above along with some 8-10 unnamed people in this connection with city’s Motihar police station.
