Activists of Bangladesh Chattra League, students' body of the ruling Awami League, allegedly attacked a Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal activist on Dhaka University campus on Tuesday afternoon.

Witnesses said a group of BCL leaders, led by Masterda Surya Sen Hall unit General Secretary Arefin Siddique Sujon, swooped on Maruful Islam near central library around 2pm.

Maruf, a Masters student of philosophy department and pro-BNP Chhatra Dal activist, was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

His friends claimed that the attack was pre-planned. 

Dhaka University acting proctor Amzad Ali said the authorities were aware of the incident. “If any of the attackers is found to be university student, we will take immediate actions.”

Chhatra Dal university unit President Maidul Islam Hiru condemned the attack and vowed to "take revenge."

Sujon denied his involvement in the attack. “Maruf used to threaten juniors of Surya Sen Hall. Those juniors beat him up.”
