Withdraw case filed against students: BNP
Condemning the filing of an attempt-to-murder case against the demonstrating students of seven colleges here, BNP on Saturday demanded the government immediately withdraw it.
“Police charged batons and fired bullets on the students of seven colleges affiliated with Dhaka University as they’re staging demonstration demanding their exam schedule. But police filed a case accusing 1,200 students of obstructing their duties and attempting to murder,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.
Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, he also said the government has once again exposed that the country has now become a police state through filing such a case against the students.
On Thursday, at least 10 students were injured as police charged batons and fired teargas shells to disperse them during their agitation at Shahbagh demanding that the dates for their pending Master’s and Honour’s exams be announced.
