Ruling party student wing clash in restaurant kills one
An activist of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of the ruling Awami League, was killed and two others were injured as two factions of the student body clashed in a restaurant at Riazuddin Bazar Amtal in Chittagong city Saturday afternoon.
Deceased Yasir Arafat was an HSC student of Chittagong Government City College, Zahirul Islam, in-charge of the police camp at Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) told the media.
Yasir had enmity with Harun, a Chhatra League activist and BSS student of the same college, said Abdur Rauf, additional deputy commissioner (south zone) of Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP).
Harun and four to five of his followers were having lunch at Madina Bhat Ghar around 3:00pm when Yasir and his fellows attacked them, said Rauf.
Both groups used knives, he said, adding that critically injured Yasir, Harun and Irfan were taken to
CMCH where doctors declared Yasir dead around 3:45pm.
Harun and Irfan had stab injuries in their hands.
Contacted, Mayen Shahriar, organising secretary of Chhatra League, Chittagong city unit, said it was “not a case of Chhatra League infighting”, rather the clash erupted as a result of “personal enmity” between Yasir and Harun.
He said both are from Satkania upazila of Chittagong.
