BCL stops classes at IU

Chhatra League (BCL) activists yesterday forced the Islamic University (IU) authorities to stop classes and examinations protesting a bomb attack on its leader.

BCL general secretary of the university unit Shamsuzzaman Tuhin and three others were wounded as unknown people threw two bombs on him on Friday night at a market adjacent to the university.

The protesters in the morning also brought out a procession on the campus. The BCL men warned that they will not allow any class or examination at the university until the attackers are arrested.

As a result, no class or examination was held yesterday.

Mahbubul Arefin, proctor of the university, told this correspondent that the situation is calm and additional police forces have been deployed on the campus.

Injured BCL leader Tuhin was shifted to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital for better treatment.

According to police and witnesses, Tuhin came under bomb attack in front of Haji Market of Sheikhpara Bazar near the campus.

The incident took place at about 8:30pm when Tuhin was standing there after ending a campaign for his father Sekandar Mollah who will run in the upcoming Tribeni Union Parishad election.
