A clash ensued between two factions of Bangladesh Chhatra League in Jahangirnagar University (JU) on Wednesday, leaving at least five activists injured.

Besides, JU Proctor Associate Professor ASM Firoz Ul Hasan suffered minor injuries in an attempt to bring the situation under control.

The activists were injured from brickbat projectiles and were given first aid at the university medical centre.

At least six rounds of bullets were fired during the melee, witnesses said.

The clash erupted after former JU unit Chhatra League general secretary Razib Ahmed Rasel was assaulted on the campus by incumbent General Secretary SM Abu Sufian Chanchal over previous enmity.

Witnesses said Chanchal swooped on Razib, physically assaulting him and his wife at the university’s central playground around 5pm.

Subsequently around 5:50pm, Razib's followers from different halls gathered at Bottala and locked in a clash with the rivals, equipped with weapons and sticks.

JU Proctor ASM Firoz Ul Hasan said police have been deployed to fend off further trouble.

"We noticed that there were huge indigenous weapons at dormitories. We need to conduct raids in the dormitories as early as possible," he added.

 According to sources, there was conflict between the two factions over recruiting university employees for large sums of bribes.
