Students of Chittagong University boycotted all classes and examinations on Sunday protesting the Saturday’s attack on members of quota reform movement at Sholosohor in the city, UNB reports

 

Anwar Hossain, convener of Chattogram unit of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, the platform of students that led the quota reform movement, said expressing solidarity with the central committee, a group of students took position in city’s Sholosohor area on Saturday.

 

At one stage, a faction of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) launched an attack on them, leaving two of the protesters injured, he alleged.

 

The injured–Tofail Ahmed and Arju Mia, co-convener of the council—were given first aid.
