BCL activists confine CU VC
A Correspondent Chittagong: A faction of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Monday confined Chittagong University (CU) Vice-chancellor Prof M Anwarul Azim Arif to his office demanding the arrest of those involved in the killing of their fellow Taposh Sarker. Mohammad Ismail, officer-in-charge of Hathazari Police Station, said the BCL men, under the banner of CFC, laid siege to the administrative building after putting all gates under lock and key around 2pm. They staged violent demonstrations during the siege and vandalised the building. The BCL men also demanded the resignation of CU Proctor Prof Siraj-Ud-Doullah over the incident. Meanwhile, a case has been filed against 65 BCL men in connection with the recovery of arms and ammunition from the BCL-dominated Shahjalal Hall after Sunday’s BCL infighting that left a BCL man killed. Habibur Rahman, sub-inspector of Hathazari Police Station, filed the case against five identified and 60 unidentified BCL men on Sunday night. Taposh Sarker, a second year student of the Sanskrit Department of the university and a BCL activist, was shot dead and five others were wounded in a fierce clash between two factions of Bangladesh Chhatra League on the campus on Sunday morning. Hours after the incident, police in a drive recovered two pistols, six rounds of bullets, 20 sharp weapons, machetes and 20 iron rods from the Shahjalal dormitory in the afternoon.
