Santu Larma-backed students, known as Dui Numberi, attacked two activists of the Hill Students’ Council in Dhaka, leaving one of them seriously injured.
The attack took place at 7:30pm near Shakya Muni Buddhist temple in Mirpur today, Sunday, when Jugol Chakma, a second year student of Bangladesh America University, and his friend Trishonku Chakma were walking towards Mirpur Section 10 Crossing after a meeting with Jumma students at Banaphul.
“We got out of Banaphul gate and barely walked a few steps when they swooped on us with sticks.’ Trishonku, who passed out from a private polytechnic institute in Dhaka, told chtnews.com.
Although he ran away with minor injuries, Jugol Chakma has got his head fractured, he added.
According to him, four Dui Numberis led by Sunendu Chakma made the attack.
The PCP activists went to Banaphul to persuade Jumma students to participate in a protest demonstration to be held on 1 March in Dhaka to demand constitutional recognition for indigenous and national minorities living in Bangladesh.
The programme is being organized by Jatisatta Mukti Sangram Parishad (Nationalities’ Liberation Movement Council)
