4 quota reform leaders hurt in attack ‘by BCL men’ at DU

Four activists of quota reform movement were injured in an attack allegedly by some Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists on the Dhaka University (DU) campus on Sunday.

 

The injured are Md Sohrab, Kabir Hossain, Jasimuddin and Bin Yamin Molla, joint conveners of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, a platform that led the quota reform movement.

 

Around 40-50 BCL leaders and activists from different dormitories swooped on the quota reformists around 3:30 pm while they were chatting in front of Dhaka University Teachers-Student Centre (TSC) cafeteria after lunch, witnesses said.

 

"The BCL men suddenly attacked us while they were chatting at TSC. We don't understand why they attacked us,” said Md Fahim Rahman Khan, a joint convener of the platform.

 

Contacted, DU unit BCL general secretary Saddam Hussain said he was not aware of any such attack.
