MMC students on strike as gang stabs mate
Alleged drug addicts caused serious stab injuries to a fourth year student of Mymensingh Medical College (MMC) yesterday.
Demanding immediate arrest of the criminals and adequate security measures for the learners, the MMC students went on an indefinite strike at the institution from 3:00pm yesterday.
The victim, Reza Hasan Taki, 21, son of Abdul Motalab, was getting into a rickshaw to go to MMC library from his Bhatikashar residence in Mymensingh town around 8:30am when 5/6 miscreants allegedly led by Taki's neighbour Limon stabbed him in different parts of the body including chest and neck, police said.
Hearing his scream, locals rushed there and took Taki to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH).
As his condition deteriorated, he was sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital by a helicopter in the afternoon, MMCH sources said.
"Limon and his companions allegedly took drug openly in the area. They got angry with Taki as he asked them not to do so. The feud might have led to the incident," said Abu Md Fazlul Karim, officer in charge of Kotwali Police Station.
The aggrieved students of MMC went on an indefinite strike at the institution from 3:00pm yesterday.
They brought out a protest procession on the campus and blocked Dhaka-Mymensingh road in front of the college for an hour. Later, police cleared the road.
The students also held a protest rally on the campus.
Dr Motiur Rahman Bhuiyan, secretary of Bangladesh Medical Association Mymensingh unit, condemned the attack and demanded the arrest of the miscreants.
