Ehsan Rafiq, the Dhaka University student assaulted by several Bangladesh Chhatra League men last month, has left for India yesterday for eye treatment.
Ehsan and his father Rafiqul Islam left their village home in Narendrapur of Kaliganj upazila yesterday morning.
They would go to Shankar Netralaya in Chennai for the treatment of Ehsan's right eye, Rafiqul told this correspondent.
On February 6, some BCL activists of Salimullah Muslim Hall unit beat up Ehsan, 20, a second-year student of disaster management and science department at DU, causing severe injury to his right eye as he asked BCL activist Omar Faruk to return a calculator that the latter had borrowed from him three months back.
Omar and his accomplices punched Ehsan numerous times in the eye, resulting in damage to the cornea of the eye.
