DU student Ehsan Rafiq will receive prolonged treatment

Ehsan Rafiq has to undergo a long-term medical treatment because of being indiscriminately punched on his right eye. He runs the risk of losing his eye sight because of profuse bleeding and possible damage to the cornea.

Ehsan Rafiq’s, a second-year student at the Disaster Management and Science Department of Dhaka University, was roughed up by Chhatra League activists on Tuesday night because of a trivial matter at the SM Hall of Dhaka University.

A doctor at the Bangladesh Eye Hospital in the capital said yesterday that the student would have to go through a prolonged treatment that could last could six months but there was no surety of him regaining full sight in his right eye.

The victim’s father, Rofiqul Islam, a journalist, told The Independent yesterday that the family was worried and was contemplating whether to take Ehsan to India for specialised treatment.

Ehsan’s condition was worsening, as he was vomiting because the attackers had hit him with iron rods on his head and other parts of the body, Rofiqul Islam added.

Last night, the vice chancellor of Dhaka University Prof. Akhtaruzzaman had gone to Ehsan’s uncle’s house at Mugda in the capital around 7:30pm and assured punishment of the attackers.

 On the other hand, ‘Students Against Reparation’ a banner of general students, has planned a protest rally on the premises of Aparejeo Bangla at 1 pm today (Sunday) against the attack on Ehsan Rafiq.

Meanwhile, a three-member probe body has been formed by the SM Hall authorities to probe the incident. Prof Sabbir Ahmed, the hall’s house tutor, is heading the committee, which has been asked to give its report within seven working days.  The Bangladesh Chhatra League, meanwhile, has suspended three of its activists for their alleged involvement in the incident, said a press release issued by the body.

On Tuesday night, Chhatra League activists of the SM Hall had beaten up Ehsan Rafiq for demanding back his calculator and confined him at Tahsan Ahmed; hall BCL president’s room without food for eight hour to prevent the news of the incident from spreading.
