A purported activist of Bangladesh Chhatra League has allegedly beaten up two female students at Jahangirnagar University as they protested against sprinkling colours on them.
Witnesses said students of Kamaluddin Hall took out a colourful procession at around 11am celebrating Pahela Boishakh like the previous years.
As the procession was passing by the university’s 'Tarzan Point', some participants threw colours at two female students there.
Witnesses alleged Akash along with his accomplices beat the two female students and dragged their cloths as they protested against sprinkling colours on them.
JU Teachers Association President Professor Ajit Kumar Majumder came forward to resist the student, but Akash, a JU 37th batch student, and others misbehaved with him.
Professor Majumder told bdnews24.com they should be punished for their insolent behaviour and harassment.
Students took out a procession led by the BSU leader Tamzida Tuba immediately after the incident.
BSU JU unit’s Acting President Tanmoy Dhar and General Secretary Mongsing Hai demanded exemplary punishment for the responsible, having condemned the incident.
Proctor Sohel Ahmed told bdnews24.com that he was trying to settle the issue.
VC Professor Anwar Hossain told bdnews24.com, “He will be punished if he is responsible for the incident.”
