Bangladesh Chhatra League men on Monday caught 10 students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) on the campus suspecting them as Islami Chhatra Shibir activists.
BUET unit BCL general secretary Abu Sayeed Kanak said some BCL activists identified Tarek Aziz, a second year student of the Mechanical Engineering Department of the university, at Nazrul Islam Hall as a Shibir activist and took him to the BUET BCL leaders.
According the information given by Tarek, the BCL men picked nine more students, including Atikur Rahman Riaz of the same department, suspecting their involvement with Shibir.
Later, the 10 students were handed over to the university authorities, Kanak said.
Some Jihadi books, video clips demeaning the prime minister and some leaflets were also recovered from their possession, he claimed.
Later, Atikur was suspended for one term while two other students were expelled from their hall and two more were warned for making anti-discipline activities, said director of the Students’ Welfare of Buet Dr Delwar Hossain.
The five other students were released as the allegation brought against them was not found true, he said.
The university authorities will, however, formally disclose the decision on Tuesday, Dr Dewlar added.
He said the Jihadi books and video clips seized from them were handed over to the Detective Branch (DB) of police.
