They say that such torture by Chhatra League workers is not a new phenomenon Earlier, the administration had given nominal punishment to the accused in some cases of torture but in most of the cases no trial was held. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Salman Siddiqui, president of the Dhaka University branch of the Student Front (Marxist) and Pragati Barman, general secretary, said this in a statement sent to the media on Friday evening.

Earlier on Thursday afternoon, Rifat Haque, a university reporter of an online news portal, was beaten in room 115 of Sir AF Rahman Hall by Farhan Tanvir, a follower of Reazul Islam, president of Chhatra League. Farhan is a second year student of linguistics department

A statement from the student front said, “Journalist Rifat Haque was beaten up by BCL activist Farhan Tanvir for not publishing ‘positive’ news about the president of Sir AF Rahman Hall BCL.” Chhatra League activists have been beating and threatening students on campus for a long time. Just as BCL activists in the guestroom torture center inflicted horrific physical and mental abuse on first-year students in the name of teaching them behavior, other year students are not spared. At the same time, the silence of the administration is also seen

A statement from the Student Front said, “The Awami League has established an ‘authoritarian regime’ across the country. The main obstacle to the democratic environment in the campus is the terrorist activities of Chhatra League Besides, the rate of harassment and torture of journalists has increased all over the country In most cases, those involved in the attacks are backed by the government or a government party Despite a written complaint about the beating of journalist Rifat Haque, the administration has not yet taken any action We demand appropriate punishment for the accused BCL activist in this incident.

Rifat Haque lodged a written complaint with AFM Hall President KM Saiful Islam Khan on Thursday night seeking justice for the beating. The chairman said that a committee will be formed to investigate the incident on Sunday, the next working day
