Staff Reporter :
Five Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) men were held on Tuesday over Rajshahi Polytechnic Institute's Principal harassment case, say the police.
The accused are Kamal Hossain Saurav, 24, eighth semester student of Computer Department; Murad Hosen, 19, fifth semester student of electronics department; Rayhanul Islam Hasib, 21, seventh semester student of electro medical department;   and former students of the institute Sabbir Ahmed Shanto, 22 and Md Salman alias Tony, 22.
A special team of Detective Branch of police arrested Saurav, Murad, Shanto and Salman from near the Bismillah Patrol Pump under Belpukur Police Station early Tuesday, according to the Facebook post of DB police posted at 1:03 am.
On the other hand, Hasib was arrested from Hatikumrul of Sirajganj by Chandrima police, said Golam Ruhul Quddus, Additional Deputy Police Commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police.
Among them, Saurav, the BCL Joint Secretary of the institute unit, led the assault on the institute's Principal on November 2.
With this five, 14 students have been arrested in this connection so far.
A group of Chhatra League men dragged Principal Farid Uddin Ahmed and pushed him into the pond on November 2 as he did not "accept one of their illogical demands", the Principal alleged.
At least 133, mostly BCL activists, out of 455 examinees got 0, 1 or 2 in the 90-mark examination in September. But the BCL men asked the authorities to make sure the activists had passed the exam, the Principal said earlier.
On the day, some youths, led by Saurav, intercepted his way near a pond when he was walking towards his office around 2:00pm.
The footage of a CCTV in the area shows some nine to 10 youths dragging the teacher by his hands and neck and then threw him into the waterbody.
Later on, the Principal filed a case against 58 persons including seven BCL men with Chandrima Police Station.
