About 7 activists of the Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal Rajshahi University unit were injured in clashes between two rival factions of the organisation on Wednesday evening during an iftar party.
Kamrul Hossain, a joint convener of the JCD university unit, told New Age that Masud Hasan, Sharif Hasan, Mostafa, Shaon and Delowar Hossain were injured in the incident and sent to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital.
Masud Hasan was stabbed in the hand with a sharp weapon and his condition is severe.
JCD leaders said that the clash erupted between activists of two factions aligned to JCD convener Arafat Reza Ashik and joint convener Kamrul Hossain and was the result of who sat at an Iftar party organised by the organisation at Hotel Spice near the university’s Binodpur entrance.
Delowar Hossain, loyal to Arafat and Masud loyal to Kamrul were locked into an altercation before the start of Iftar, resulting in the activists threatening each others.
After breaking fast at around 7:30pm, the two groups took sticks, rods and sharp weapons from the nearby students’ messes and fought one another, leaving 7 of them injured.
Arafat Reza Ashik told New Age that the clash erupted from a misunderstanding between the activists and that ‘he will solve the matter in a peaceful way’.
