At least ten, including the provost, were injured in a clash between the Awami League student wing Chahhtra League and the BNP student front Chhatra Dal at the Sergeant Zahurul Haque Hall playground at Dhaka University on Saturday.

The clash resulted from a quarrel between the leaders and activists of the rival student fronts over a football match between the hall and central units of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal.

The hall provost, Zahidul Islam, said, ‘Two Chhatra Dal groups wanted to play a friendship football match in the hall playground and they took my permission.

But Chhatra Dal leaders of the hall said Chhatra Dal gathered outsiders at the place.’ ‘At a point, they entered into an altercation which resulted into the clash.

I was injured as I approached to stop them,’ he said. Six Chhatra League activists and three Chhatra Dal activists were injured.

The injured are Shamsul Kabir Rahat, Mizanur Rahman Rubel, Ashraf Ali, Mazhar, Nayan and Saqlain of Chhatra League, and Chhatra Dal activists Rokonuzzaman, a resident of the Zia Hall, and Shahazada and Faisal, residents of the Zahurul Haque Hall.

Tension kept mounting on the campus after the clash. Policemen were deployed at the Zia Hall. The vice-chancellor, SMA Faiz, visited the hall and asked the provost to take steps to keep peace.

He said an inquiry committee would be formed to investigate the matter and policemen would be deployed at the hall gate. Injured Rahat of Chhatra League said, ‘The Chhatra Dal activists attacked us when we were talking with the provost.’

The provost accused the Chhatra League of interfering into the peaceful holding of the football match. Leaders of both the groups asked their activists to keep calm.
