UNB, Dhaka :

A case was filed at Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate court on Wednesday against eight Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists of its Eden Mohila College unit including president Tamanna Jesmin Riva and general secretary Razia Sultana on charges of attempt to murder.

Taking the case into cognizance, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Syed Mostafa Reza Nur instructed Lalbagh police to investigate the matter and submit a report on October 23.

Eden college BCL vice president Jannatul Ferdous submitted a plea to file the case at the court.

The other accused are- Nujhat Faria Roksana, Meem Islam, Nur Jahan, Ritu Akter, Anika Tabassum Shorna and Kamrun Nahar Jyoti.

According to the case statement, three to four BCL activists including Shorna entered Jannatul’s room at the instruction of Riva and Razia with local weapons and vandalized her belongings in her absence on September 24. They also looted cash Tk 20,000, gold ornaments and her laptop.

The eight accused also physically assaulted Jannatul her in front of Ayesha Hall of the college, leaving her critically injured.

Later, teachers took her to a nearby hospital.

The accused also threatened to kill her if she does not leave the campus.

Earlier on Sunday, BCL suspended all activities of its Eden Mohila College unit committee following infightings between its two groups which left at least eight people injured.
