Four Ansar members were suspended on Tuesday for assaulting a Jahangirnagar University (JU) student at National Martyrs’ Memorial in Savar.

They are Omar Faruk, Sarowar, Nazrul, and Romzan.

Contacted, Dhaka Zilla commandant of Ansar VDP Afzal Hossain said, ‘We have already expelled four accused members and listed them to ‘Black-list’ so that they cannot apply for the post again.’

Necessary steps were being taken to provide the expenses of the student’s treatment, the officer also said.

Meanwhile, hundreds of JU students blocked the Dhaka-Aricha highway on the day protesting the assault on their fellow student.

The protesters staged a human chain in front of the main entrance of the university around 11:30am and later took position on the highway, triggering long tailbacks on both sides of the highway for around half an hour.
