Charge accepted against Khadiza's attacker
The police pressed 'attempt to murder' charge against Badrul in court last week. The ruling Awami League’s student front leader brutally hacked Khadiza, a second-year bachelors student at Sylhet Government Women’s College, with a machete near Sylhet MC College campus on October 3. Locals caught Badrul, a SUST unit BCL leader, from the spot and rescued Khadiza.
