Two factions of Dhaka University’s Salimullah Muslim hall union yesterday clashed over evicting an outsider from the hall, leaving the outsider injured.
Witnesses said a group of resident students of the dorm led by its hall union general secretary Zulias Cizar conducted a drive to oust outsiders and non-students.
At the time, students found one Shujan at room-152, who was allegedly staying at the room under the “shelter” of hall union’s social service secretary Milon Hossain Khan.
Agitated students beat up Shujan, and dragged his mattress and belongings out of the room, said witnesses.
Hearing this, Milon and some activists of hall unit BCL, chased the students with iron rods and sticks, triggering a clash between two groups.
Hall union vice president Kamal Uddin and hall unit BCL president Tahsan Ahmed Rasel later pacified the situation.
Cizar told this newspaper Milon was staying alone at a room that can house eight students, and Shujan was paying rent to Milon to stay there.
Milon could not be reached over phone for comments.
Asked, house tutor of the dorm Shabbir Ahmed said they would take action after investigating the incident.
