Leaders and activists of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) came under attack on the campus of Dhaka University (DU) on Sunday.

The incident took place in front of Madhur Canteen around 12 noon.

At least four JCD activists were hurt in the attack. The injured are Mamun Khan, Shahjahan Shawn, Tarek Hasan Mamun and Naeem Hasan. They were taken to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital and the university’s medical centre.

JCD alleged that the attack was carried out by BCL led by central vice-president Aminul Islam Bulbul.

JCD DU unit President Al Mehdi Talukder said, "We urged the university authorities to take steps against the previous attack but they didn't. That's the reason why BCL launched the attack today.”

On the other hand, BCL denied its involvement in the attack. BCL acting President Al Nahian Khan Joy told Daily Sun, “Their allegation against BCL is not true.”
