RU students 'scuffle' over cricket match

2 teachers injured

Two groups of students at Rajshahi University scuffled following a dispute over a cricket match held in the university stadium yesterday.

Around 6-8 students and two teachers were injured in the incident.

Witnesses said the scuffle ensued between the Finance department team and Geography team following sledging by the latter during a cricket match.  Enraged, the Finance team reacted and locked in a quarrel. Later, some teachers came forward and sorted the clash.

But some players of the winner Geography team were later attacked by Ershadur Rahman Refat and some others of Finance team, said Prof Mizanoor Rahman quoting victims.

When he went there along with another teacher to settle the matter, they were also assaulted by the students, Prof Mizanoor alleged.

But Refat, a master's student of Finance Department denied the allegations and claimed one of the player from the opposite team first hit him.

Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof Anand Kumar Saha said steps will be taken in this regard after a written complaint is filed.
