A DU student “attacked” for missing a BCL event before the conference hall

A student in residence at Jagannath Hall at Dhaka University was “physically assaulted” on Sunday for failing to attend a Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) program, ahead of his much-vaunted lecture.

Sagor, a master’s student in the mathematics department, has filed a written complaint with the hall administration against Satyajit Debnath, one of the candidates for the next BCL conference who will choose the committee members in each hall for the student front of the ruling party – a key process through which it maintains its grip on the student body of residential universities.

In the current atmosphere of student politics where BCL enjoys an almost unbridled domination, these committee places tend to be highly coveted, although they usually engage in activities that have little to do with student politics. healthy.

However, Satyajit, a 2013-14 session geology department student and BCL Jagannath Hall ICT secretary, categorically denied everything.

Jagannath Hall Provost Mihir Lal Shaha could only admit that they had received a written complaint, adding that they were “working on it”.

Satyajit, who was once an ally of BCL Jagannath Hall General Secretary Utpal Biswas, is now a disciple of BCL General Secretary Lekhak Bhattacharjee.

“Satyajit Debnath came to my room around 2:30 pm with some of his supporters and verbally assaulted me before physically assaulting me,” Sagar said. “I was unable to attend the BCL programs on a regular basis as my final exam is scheduled for December 29.”

Utpal said: “I heard about the incident from a junior and I don’t know much about it. However, from what I heard, it was a misunderstanding between Satyajit and Sagor. “
