BCL man suspended from DU dorm for assaulting student

Dhaka, Sept 29 (UNB) – An activist of Dhaka University (DU) unit Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) has been suspended from Bijoy Ekattor Hall for beating a student with a cricket stump.

The hall authorities took the action against Rabbi Ahmed, a second-year student of Pali and Buddhist Studies department.

He was also asked to explain in three days why he should not be expelled, said a notice signed by hall Provost Prof AJM Shafiul Alam Bhuiyan.

The notice also said the hall authorities will take permanent action against Rabbi as per the DU rules if he fails to give satisfactory answer by the deadline.

Rabbi, a supporter of BCL acting President Al Nahean Khan Joy, allegedly beat Rana Akondo, a first-year student of Social Welfare Institution, with a cricket stump in the guestroom of Bijoy Ekattor Hall on Friday night as he did not attend a BCL programme.

Contacted, the hall provost told UNB that they suspended Rabbi as the allegation brought against him was found to be true. “We verified the authentication of the incident after scrutinising the CCTV footage and Rabbi also confessed to his crime.”
