Four students have been reportedly beating overnight by the others in the style of Abrar — a second-year student who was beaten to death in the BUET’s Sher-e-Bangla Hall on October 7 — at Shaheed Surgent Hall of Dhaka University (DU) on Tuesday night.

The complaints arose against the Chhatra League’s dispersed committee vice-president Anwar Hossain, joint general secretary Amir Hamza, hall parliament’s vice-president Saifullah Abbasi Ananta and many others. 

It was learned that the BCL guestroom was operating at around 11:00 pm on Tuesday. Md Mukim Chowdhury, university’s second-year student of the Department of Tourism and Hospitality Management, was called to the guestroom on suspicion of ‘Shibir’. 

There Chhatra League’s dispersed committee vice-president Anwar Hossain and joint general secretary Amir Hamza put mental pressure on him with the help of others. 

Not accepting the allegation, he was beaten with a stick, stump, and rod. Later, Sanowar Hossain, a third-year student of the Department of Political Science, was brought to the guestroom after seeing the phone’s chat list. Chhatra League leaders beat him there too. Unable to endure the beating, they both lay on the floor and lay down.  

Shortly thereafter, Minhaj Uddin, a second-year student of the Department of Islamic History and Culture, and Afsar Uddin of the Department of Arabic was brought to the guestroom. Chhatra League leaders continued to torture them till 2:00 pm. 

Later, they were handed over to the Shahbag Police Station by a proctorial team. Police rushed them to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. 

Chhatra League leaders claim that Shibir-related books were recovered from them. However, when the reporters asked for names or evidence — they could not give any. 

Although they were called to the guestroom on suspicion of Shibir, the Chhatra League could not find any evidence of their involvement in the Shibir politics. When contacted the accused Anwar Hossain and Amir Hamza, their phones were found switched off. 

No one tortured them. They have been handed over to the police with the help of the Hall administration and the proctorial team, said Professor AKM Golam Rabbai, proctor of Dhaka University. “If nothing found from them, they will be released.”
