14 Dhaka Polytechnic students shot in three-way clash
At least 14 students of Dhaka Polytechnic Institute have sustained gunshot wounds in a triangular clash between students, locals and police near the institute in the capital's Tejgaon area. The clash around 9pm on Tuesday also left nine others, including two policemen, injured, said police. Some of the injured had received treatment at Tejgaon’s MH Samorita Hospital and Medical College while the rest were admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Ten of the 14 students who were shot were identified as Faisal, Rasel, Manik, Shahjalal, Babul, Saiful, Basu, Nadim, Pranto and Rony. Seven of them live in that neighbourhood at Tejgaon where the clash erupted. Faisal claimed police and locals had attacked them when the students tried to put a stop to local peddlers’ narcotics dealing. “We got hit by bullets when shots were fired during the clash.” However, Tejgaon Industrial Zone police station’s duty officer Sub-Inspector Sumon claimed the students had clashed with the locals. “Police dispersed the warring groups after arriving at the scene. Everything is normal now.” The station’s OC Abdur Rashid also added that the students had a longstanding rivalry with a group of youths of Begunbari slum. “Police fired several rounds from shotguns to bring them under control.” He added that four people were arrested after the clash. “We are also conducting searches for the others responsible.” This article was first published on Bangla Tribune
