A student leader at the Dhaka University (DU) has been hospitalised with bullet injuries after unidentified men opened fire from a car in the campus.
Abdullah Al Zubayer Bhuiyan, a vice president of the university's Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) unit, has been taken to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital early on Sunday.
BCL is the student affiliate of the ruling Awami League.
"He has been shot in the leg and is out of danger now," said DMCH police camp's Sub Inspector Bachchu Mia.
Zubayer was on a motorcycle with two others when he was shot.
Jahirul Islam, president of the BCL Muhsin Hall unit, was driving the motorcycle.
He told bdnews24.com that around 1:45am they were returning to their residential hall, when a car blocked them. "I turned around sensing trouble but immediately came under fire from the car."
Islam said they took Zubayer to the DMCH, when they found he was shot.
He, however, could not say who might have attacked them.
