BCL run riot at DU Bijoy Ekattor Hall overnight
Staff Reporter:Bangladesh Chhatra League activists went on rampage at Bijoy Ekattor Hall in Dhaka University on early Tuesday attempting to give space to their supporters forcefully.
They chased away resident teachers, vandalized the office room of the hall provost, beat up a campus reporter and terrorized general students for hours overnight, our DU bd24live correspondent.
The rampage was directed by Bijoy Ekattor Hall Chhatra League President Fakir Rasel and Secretary Nayan Hawlader, a resident teacher told our correspondent on condition of anonymity.
The hall’s Provost Shafiul Alam Bhuiyan told bd24live that the Chhatra League activists vandalized his office room in front of him when he tried to calm down the situation.
According to sources, this five-year-old hall was the only one in the university where the hall authorities have sole power in allotting spaces for students.
Last night, Chhatra League attempted to break the tradition. The rampage went on from midnight until 4:00am, witnesses said. UNB campus reporter Imran Hossain was physically assaulted.
None of the accused BCL leaders could be caught up over cellphone. However, Dhaka University central BCL President Abid Al Hassan said that organizational actions will be taken against those responsible.
