Police officials deployed in the area brought the situation under control soon after the scuffle broke out, and evicted the troublemakers from the premises. Speaking to this correspondent, Dhaka University Vice Chancellor Dr Akhtaruzzaman said: “Sometimes untoward incidents just happen. Those who were involved in the scuffle do not hold the spirit of the Language Martyrs’ Day in their hearts. “The situation was brought under control within minutes. This is just an isolated incident. We should not judge the whole situation through just one such incident.” Parts of this article were taken from banglatribune.com
