Teachers of Nasirabad University College in the district town yesterday demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment of the culprits who attacked their three colleagues, including the principal, on Monday.
The demand was made at a press conference organised by Shikkhakh Parishad, a teachers' forum of the college, at the auditorium of Mymensingh Press Club.
On Monday afternoon, a gang of 7/8 entered the college campus and started catching fishes in a pond.
As Principal Md Ashraf Uddin and two other teachers--Masum Billah and Moudud Ahmed--asked them to stop fishing and leave the campus, the gang physically assaulted them.
Before leaving the scene, they threatened the teachers with dire consequences if they filed any complaint with the policec station concerned in this regard, said the speakers at the press conference.
Although a case was filed with Sadar Police Station in connection with the attack, police are yet to arrest the culprits, the teachers of the college alleged.
College teachers Sheikh Amjad Ali, Md Jalal Uddin, Manik Lal Saha, Reazul Katim, Lutfur Rahman, Azharul Islam and ATM Shafiqul Islam, among others, spoke.
Earlier on Tuesday, the teachers and employees of the college formed a human chain in the town, demanding immediate arrest to the attackers.
