Seven Chhatra League activists have been sent to jail in a case filed over the attack

Bangladesh Chhatra League activists reportedly attacked the Borhanuddin police station in Bhola’s Borhanuddin upazila on Sunday night and left six policemen injured over the seizure of a leader’s motorcycle.

Police later detained 25 activists of the ruling party student wing during raids in different places of the town and later showed seven of them arrested — in a case filed against 38 people over the attack and vandalising of the station.

A Bhola court on Monday sent the seven to jail after they were produced before it by police.

Borhanuddin police OC Asim Kumar Shikdar said a police team intercepted and impounded the undocumented motorcycle of Jehad Hossain, leader of Chhatra League’s Borhanuddin Abdul Jabbar Government College unit, around 3:30pm Sunday and then took it to the station.

He said a group of Chhatra League activists, led by Jehad, arrived at the police station around 7:30pm, shouting slogans and wielding sticks.

As police tried to resist them, they entered the compound breaking open the main gate and then swooped on the on duty policemen, Asim said, which led to a clash.

Later, additional police from Bhola went to the scene and brought the situation under control.

The clash had left Asim and five other policemen injured. Two of them were admitted to Borhanuddin Upazila Health Complex, while the rest were given first aid.

Regarding the incident, Chhatra League’s Borhanuddin upazila unit President Md Nazrul Islam said the organization’s activists who were involved would be punished. “This is a deplorable incident. Its unacceptable.”
