Bangladesh Chhartra League activists Wednesday noon attacked a procession of quota reform movement at Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur, leaving five students injured.
The injured were given first aid at different clinics and hospitals of the city. Two of the
injured were identified as Alamgir Kabir and Rashedul Islam.
The university unit joint-convener of quota reform movement, Mohammad Roknonuzaman, said that the BCL activists launched the attack on their peaceful procession.
No attack would be able to stop their movement, he said.
University unit BCL general secretary Nobel Sheikh said that the agitating students in the name of quota reform were creating anarchy.
He claimed that most of the participants in the procession were outsiders. ‘We prevented the outsiders,’ he said.
Earlier BCL men launched series of attacks on students demanding reform to the existing quota system in the public service across the country.
