A hall committee leader of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), student wing of Awami League, assaulted a central committee leader of the same party in front of the organisation's central committee president and general secretary Sunday on Dhaka University (DU) campus.
According to eyewitnesses, BCL Sir F Rahman Hall unit leader Abu Abbas alias Bomb Abbas, along with BCL worker Delwar alias Chhotto Delwar, physically assaulted Kayum Hossain, central committee member of the student body, in front of Teachers Students Centre (TSC) at about 1:30pm Sunday.
Sources said that the internal bickering was the reason for the conflict.
Kayum belongs to the group led by BCL central committee General Secretary Nazrul Islam Babu while Abbas works in favour of the student body's president Liaquat Sikder.
A tense environment has been prevailing between the two rival factions of the opposition student body following the incident, sources alleged.
