At least three cocktails were blasted in front of the Madhur Canteen in Dhaka University campus.

The explosion took place around 10:00 am on Sunday.

However, no information was immediately available as to who or why caused the blast.

Meanwhile, DU Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani has visited the spot. Police arrived at the scene.

Witness Chhatra League vice-president Hasan Mahmud told DailyBangladesh, “While I was going to the library next to the Madhur canteen in the morning, I heard three loud noises. Ran and could not see anyone. Possibly, three cocktails were thrown from the roof of the Arts building. And within 30 seconds of the cocktail blast, a rally of Chhatra Dal (BNP student body) marched through the canteen.”

In this regard, a member of the Dhaka University Committee of the BNP student body Amanullah Aman said, "We enter after 10 to 15 minutes of the incident." “So there is no question of our involvement in this.”

Professor Golam Rabbani, a professor at Dhaka University, said “A group had basically done so to destabilize the campus. We are investigating who or what is involved with the incident.”

Earlier, on December 26, an improvised cocktail was recovered from DU in front of a Madhur Canteen. The attack on VP Nurul Haque Nur and his associates took place at the Central Student Parliament building (DUCSU) building of Dhaka University on Sunday afternoon last. At least 25 people were injured in the attack, including Nur, Farabi and Sohail.
