"We were attacked first at Madhur Canteen when our 10-member delegation went to meet BCL president and general secretary," said Saif Babu, spokesperson of the deprived faction and former BCL publicity secretary.
"Suddenly,BCL general secretary Golam Rabbani charged BM Lipi Akter (Deputy cultural affairs secretary in new committee) why she delivered a speech against him at a media talk show. Lipi replied that she learnt it from him," Saif said. "Rabbani got furious, abused her verbally and slapped her. Activists, loyal to Rabbani, also attacked other deprived          students," Saif Babu alleged. The alleged attackers included drama and debate affairs secretary Jewel Molla, GS (general secretary) of Sir AF Rahman hall union Abdur Rahim (Rahim Sarker), VP (vice-president) of Bangabandhu hall union Akmol Hossain, GS of Ziaur Rahman hall Hasibul Hossen Santo.
