Chhatra League beats 7 RU students
Nine young men, including seven Rajshahi University students, have been severely beaten by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists, who accused the former of being members of Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student front of Jamaat-e-Islami. The incident took place around 7pm on Tuesday at the Bangabandhu Hall. The nine students were later handed over to police. The Rajshahi University students are — Rahmatullah, Shahriar Tanjim and Abdul Kader of the Department of Islamic History and Culture, Arifur Rahman from international relations, Yakub from management, Mizanur Rahman from Sanskrit and Tuhin from the Islamic studies department of Rajshahi University. The other two are — 10th grader Golam Rabbi from Loknath school and Tanmoy from Rajshahi City College. Witnesses say around 5:30pm, 16 students were holding a meeting at the university’s Shaheed Minar. From there, Chhatra League’s Rajshahi University unit chief Golam Kibria, General Secretary Faisal Ahmed, Vice-President Mahfuzur Rahman, and others took them to Bangabandhu Hall and beat them up. Later, the proctor and the hall’s house tutor rushed to the scene. But the Chhatra League activists handed over nine students to police. Kibria said: “We took the students to Bangabandhu Hall after learning about their meeting at the Shaheed Minar. After questioning them, we handed nine students over police because of their affiliation with Shibir, and let the others go.” But Noman and Golam Rabbi claimed that they had nothing to do with Shibir. They said they managed a university coaching centre. This year, a number of students from their centre got into Rajshahi University. “We were holding a meeting to give a reception to these students when the Chhatra League activists came and picked us up,” Noman said. Proctor Prof Lutfur Rahman said the situation was under control. Police said they admitted the nine students to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital as they were in bad shape after being beaten up by Chhatra League activists. “We will take necessary actions against them after they recover,” said Matihar police station OC Shahadat Hossain.
