“BCL attack leaves Junaid Saki, 7 others injured at CMCH”
Activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) of Chattogram Medical College unit allegedly attacked Junaid Saki and his co-activists while he was leaving the hospital after visiting the patients injured in the fire at BM Container Depot in Sitakunda upazila of Chattogram.
The incident occurred at 6:00pm, reports our Chattogram staff correspondent quoting eye-witnesses.
According to eye witnesses, a group of BCL activists chanting Joy Bangla slogan, launched an attack on Junaid Saki and a few others.
Saki, who is also the chief coordinator of Ganosamhati Andolon, suffered injuries on his nose and one of his hands, our Chattogram staff correspondent reports quoting witnesses.
A BCL activist Asif Bin Taki who is a fifth year MBBS student of CMC claimed that another BCL faction is responsible for the attack.
"At present, CMC BCL is divided into two factions -- one loyal to former city mayor AJM Nasir Uddin and other loyal to the Deputy Minister of education Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury Nowfel. I belong to the first faction," he said.
CMCH Director Brig Gen Shamim Ahsan could not be reached over phone for his comments despite repeated attempts.
