Chittagong: Two separate cases were lodged on Friday night in connection with the Wednesday’s clash between two factions of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) in the city.
On Wednesday evening, two rival groups of JCD locked in a clash over the newly formed Chittagong City unit JCD committee in the city’s Khulshi area, leaving at least seven people, including the unit general secretary Belayet Hossain Bulu, injured.
Police said Ayesha Begum, mother of Riku, one of the injured JCD activists, filed an attempt to murder case with Khulshi Police Station accusing four identified and 20-25 unidentified people.
The four identified accused are- general secretaries of the city unit Jubo Dal and JCD respectively Mosharraf Hossain Dipti and Belayat Hossain Bulu, and Bulu’s followers- Abdul Hye and Bihari Guddu.
Meanwhile, M Zahir, JCD activist loyal to Bulu, filed a counter case with the same PS against 11 identified, including Riku, and 40-50 unidentified people.
Aggrieved JCD activists, who were not in the JCD 11-member city unit committee formed on July 21 after 10 years, have been protesting demanding cancellation of the newly-formed committee over its formation.
