Some leaders and activists of Chhatra League mostly followers of its university unit president Sanjit Chandra Das also joined Muktijoddha Mancha members and assaulted the Chhatra Dal activists.
All the injured were taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital and the university’s medical centre for treatment.
Earlier, Muktijoddha Mancha was holding a press conference at Madhu’s Canteen regarding a controversial Facebook posted by Chhatra Dal general secretary Iqbal Hossain Shyamal.
Chhatra Dal at another press conference at Dhaka University Journalist Association’s office claimed Shaymal’s Facebook account was hacked few days ago and they also lodged a general diary in this regard with Tejgaon police station but Chhatra League was on smear campaign over it.
Acknowledging the attack Muktijuddha Mancha president Aminul Islam Bulbul said Chhatra Dal tried to create anarchy on the campus so they resisted them with the spirit of liberation war.
