A student of Ideal College at Dhanmondi area of the capital was shot at following a dispute between two groups of students over assembling in a tea stall in front of the institute.
The incident took place at around 1pm on Saturday. The injured student, Naimur Rashid Nabil, 18, is a first year student of Business Education at the college.
Abidur Rahman, Inspector (Investigation) of Kalabagan Police Station, said Nabil was shot at as a result of arguments between senior and junior students of the college over which group should assemble at the tea stall.
Nabil’s classmate Kausar Alam said on Friday evening the former had a quarrel with a second year student of the same department, Ashraful Islam Palak, at the tea shop.
“This (Saturday) afternoon Palak’s friend, an outsider named Saif Hossain Roman, came with 20-30 boys and fired a few rounds of shots in front of the college. Roman shot Nabil in the leg in Palak’s presence,” Alam said. The incident spread panic in the area. Eyewitnesses said students began running helter-skelter at the time of the incident.
Kolabagan Police Station’s Abid said, “From the victim’s side police were informed that they would file a case. We are trying to nab those who opened fire at Nabil,” according to bdnews24.com. -Mithun
