Rajshahi IHT closed sine die after ‘BCL attack’

The authorities closed the Institute of Health Technology (IHT) for an indefinite period on Wednesday following an attack on the students allegedly by some Chhatra League activists that left five female students injured.

The BCL men attacked the students when they went to the principal’s room for lodging complaint against extortion and harassment by BCL activists.

All male students were asked to leave the dormitories by 1 pm while the female ones by 3 pm, said IHT principal Dr Sirazul Islam.

The decision was taken at an emergency meeting of academic council to fend off any unwanted situation, he said. 

The attack left five students – Rupa, 19, Naznin Aktar, 18, of Pharmacy Department, Nishat , Mohona, Afrin Sharmin and Bristy, 18, of Laboratory Department injured.

Some students in the morning submitted a memorandum to the principal demanding punishment of  the BCL leaders who allegedly harassed students and extort money from them. UNB
