Students of Mymensingh Medical College continued their agitation, boycotting classes for the sixth consecutive day yesterday, protesting police failure to arrest Limon and his associates, who critically injured Taki, a fourth year student of the college on Saturday.
The agitating students yesterday again blocked the Dhaka-Mymensingh highway for nearly one and a half hours from 11:00am in Charpara area of the town to realise their demands.
Meanwhile, police in a drive arrested Limon's parents and a brother from Karimganj upazila in Kishoreganj district early yesterday and brought them to Sadar Police Station in Mymensingh.
Police are quizzing Limon's parents and his brother at the police station to know the possible whereabouts of the main accused of the attack, said Abu Md Fazlul Karim, officer in charge of the police station.
According to their information, police are conducting drives at different places to arrest Limon, added the OC.
However, the deadline as per the fresh ultimatum submitted to the district administration by the MMC teachers and leaders of Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) to arrest the attackers expires today.
Contacted, Dr Motiur Rahman Bhuiyan, secretary of BMA Mymensingh unit, said they will sit together with the agitating students to discuss the nature of further movements, if Limon is not arrested by today.
Reza Hasan Taki, who is undergoing treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Dhaka Medical College Hospital, was stabbed indiscriminately by some alleged drug addicts led by his neighbour Limon on Saturday morning as Taki told them not to take drug openly in the area.
On the same night, police nabbed Al Amin and Shafiqul Islam, two cousins of Limon, for interrogation and later produced them before a court that sent them to jail.
