Traffic sergeant lodges assault case against JnU students
A case has been filed against 30-40 unidentified students of Jagannath University (JnU), for the assault of a traffic sergeant while he was on duty at the Banglamotor intersection in Dhaka on Monday. Sergeant Kawser Hamid, the victim, filed the case with Ramna Police Station on Tuesday. No one had been arrested in connection with the incident at the time of filing this report. When contacted by the Dhaka Tribune, Sergeant Hamid said that the students, who were travelling on three double-decker buses, attempted to pressure him into allowing them to cross the intersection early. When the sergeant refused to manipulate traffic purely for their convenience, the buses carrying the students tried to cross the intersection and move towards the Kawran Bazar area regardless of the signal having not been given.

Sergeant Hamid stopped the buses once more, due to their breach of traffic law, at which point some of the students came down from the vehicles and began beating him. Other students on the buses took the assailants back inside when a journalist at the location started taking pictures and other on-duty policemen came to aid their fellow official. “Even when I was being beaten, I did not bow to their demands and allow their wrong doing. Eventually, they took the right path,” Sergeant Hamid said. “If the case is not prosecuted, then others may gain the courage to commit such crimes against law enforcement officials,” he added. DMP media sources confirmed Sergeant Hamid’s account of the incident, adding that 8-10 students took part in the merciless assault, even tearing off the on-duty officer’s uniform. They further said that Hamid, having been critically injured, was taken to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital for treatment after the attack.
