At least 20 people, including VP of Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) Nurul Haque Nur, were injured in an attack reportedly by BCL men in the district town on Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses said Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council organised an iftar party at Woodburn Public Library auditorium where Nur was supposed to speak as the chief guest.

In their apparent bid to foil the iftar party, around 40-50 Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) men, led by Govt Azizul Haque College unit general secretary Abdur Rauf, reportedly took position at the venue and asked for shutting down the programme, alleged convener of the district unit of the council Rakibul Hasan Rakib.

Ducus VP Nur and his companions reached the venue in a microbus around 5pm, he said, adding that as soon as they got down from the vehicle, the BCL activists swooped on them.

The attackers punched them and beat them with sticks, Rakib said.

They also beat the cameraperson of Jamuna Television Shahnewaz as he was taking footage of the attack, he added.

Of the injured, Nur and several others were sent to Dhaka after providing primary treatment.

Rakib said they arranged the iftar party after taking permission from the local administration.

Meanwhile, in-charge of Stadium police outpost Inspector Mostafiz Hasan said a group of miscreants suddenly launched the attack.

Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council joint convener Faruque Hasan said their several leaders and activists were injured in the attack. "Of them, Nur's injuries are severe," he said, adding that they took primary treatment in Bogura but started for the capital in an ambulance fearing more attacks.

No version of local BCL was available immediately in this regard.

Nur, who came under BCL attack several times previously, is a student of English department of Dhaka University and a joint convener of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, which led the protests for reforms in the quota system in government jobs in 2018.

He was elected Ducsu VP on March 11 last.UNB.
