The newly-elected Dhaka University Central Students’ Union vice-president Nurul Huq nur on Wednesday issued a five-day ultimatum to the university authorities to take necessary actions against Bangladesh Chhatra League men, who had assaulted him and others.
Nur issued this ultimatum from a protest rally held at Raju memorial sculpture of the university shortly after holding a meeting with vice-chancellor on Wednesday morning.
Earlier in the night, he held a sit-in protested in front of the vice-chancellor house, protesting at the attack.
Nur and others came under BCL attack when they went to Salimullah Muslim Hall, seeking justice for the attack on Farid Hasan on Monday night.
Urdu department student Farid, a resident of the hall, was allegedly forced to pull out his candidature for March 11 elections.
The Chhatra League activists threw eggs and mud at Nur and other protesters and took away their loudspeakers.
The Salimullah Muslim hall provost Mahbubul Alam Joarder was also hit by eggs from Chhatra League activists, witnesses said.
Addressing the rally, Nur said the vice-chancellor assured them to take exemplary punishment against those, who attacked and assaulted them.
The VC also assured them of ousting the outsiders from dormitories, so they postponed their programme until Monday, Nur said the rally.
He threatened to go for hard-line if his demands were not met by the stipulated time.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Chhatra League’s Dhaka University chapter secretary Saddam Hussain, also the assistant general secretary of DUCSU, at a press conference at Madhu’s canteen of the university on Wednesday condemned the incident but termed ‘the egg-attack as a language of protest’.
