All arrestees released
Police yesterday released all the detainees of Thursday's car accident and the subsequent vandalism on Dhaka University campus following a negotiation between the car owner and the DU authorities.
They were freed around 12:30am yesterday when the owner of the car that hit Sadhan Kumar Ghosh, a fourth year DU student, gave assurance of bearing all the treatment cost.
Rezaul Karim, officer-in-charge of the Sahbagh Police Station, said they released the two DU students detained for vandalism and Rubaiya, whose car hit Sadhan, her driver and two friends who were in the car when the accident occurred.
After a discussion with the DU authorities at Sahbagh Police Station, Rubaiya's family handed over TK 50,000 to the authorities for Sadhan's treatment and promised to give more if needed, Rezaul said.
Rubaiya Haque, a first year student of Dhaka City College, hit Sadhan, a resident of Jagannath Hall, on the DU campus around 12:30pm on Thursday.
Meanwhile, owners of the vandalised cars and a journalist who lost his camera filed six general diaries (GD) with Sahbagh Police Station.
After the accident, angry student of the university mainly from the Jagannath Hall, torched two cars and vandalised 25 others in the campus area.
NTV's DMCH correspondent Al Amin alleged that the students seized his camera when he was taking photos of the vandalism.
DU Proctor Prof KM Saiful Islam also said he had heard about it and will try to return it to the reporter if the students had seized that.
Meantime, Sadhan, who was undergoing treatment at the DMCH, told The Daily Star yesterday that he was feeling good except for a headache and a little pain in the left leg.
Sources in the DMCH said Sadhan talked with his friends throughout the day and seemed fit.
