1 held over assault on RU students

More than 100 students of Institute of Business administration of Rajshahi University (RU) staged a demonstration on campus yesterday, protesting an attack on their classmates the previous night. 

Four students of IBA, including two girls, were attacked by some local youths at Binodpur Bazar, near the campus.

IBA students brought out a procession on campus and held a demonstration before the central library, demanding immediate punishment for the culprits.

Students also filed a case with Motihar Police Station, against eight named and 15 to 20 unnamed persons.

One of the attackers was already arrested by Motihar Police in this case,  said Hafizur Rahman, officer-in-charge of the police station.

“We are looking for the other accused,” the OC added.

On Sunday night, the four students were hanging out at Binodpur Bazar, when some local youths hurled abusive words to the two girls, witness said.

When their friends protested the incident, the miscreants attacked them, and physically harassed the two female students.
