The students made a three-point demand - restricting entry of outsiders into the campus and ensure safety of students; arresting the miscreants who stabbed Firoz; and explaining why law enforcement agencies detained protesting students.

According to campus sources, Firoz and a friend was standing near a photocopy shop when a group of miscreants took him to a field around 8:45pm Friday.

When Firoz tried to scream, they stabbed him and fled. Nearby people heard his screams and rescued him. 

Later, he was admitted to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH), where he is currently receiving treatment.

Investigative officer in the case, Sub-Inspector of Police (SI) Abdul Rahman said: "Three people, Rumel, Parvez and Rakesh, have been arrested based on suspicion. They are being interrogated."
