A factional clash in the ranks of Bangladesh Chhatra League at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) over “ragging” has left 12 injured.

According to witnesses, Chhatra League Cultural Affairs Secretary Sakhawat Hossain and Organizing Secretary Asif Hossain Rony, took offense at one of their acquaintances being “ragged” by Mushfiqur Rahman Zia, also a Chhatra League member.

Around 3:30pm Sunday, a group of Sakhawat’s followers attacked one of Mushfiqur’s group, injuring four of them.

The proctorial body intervened to deliver calm and sense to the situation, but Mushfiqur’s group retaliated severely, injuring several others.

A total of seven had to be admitted to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical Collge and Hospital for medical treatment.

Proctor-in-Charge, Zahid Hasan, said he has spoken to both parties and will take stern action against the responsible parties after an investigation. He also said additional police has been deployed on campus to prevent untoward incidents.
