Students of Gonoshasthaya Kendra in Savar which was attacked by vandals yesterday, formed a human chain this noon protesting the attack and demanding punishment of the attackers.

Around a thousand students formed the human chain around 12:30pm inside the campus, our Savar correspondent reports from the spot.

Meanwhile, Krishak Sramik Janata League President Abdul Kader Siddique visited the campus and talked with students and staff of Gonoshasthaya Kendra.

He strongly condemned the attacks and assured the victims that he will raise the matter in front of higher authorities.

Kader also visited Limon Hossain at the surgery ward of Gonoshasthya Hospital, whose right arm was broken in the attack.

“The attackers must face the highest punishment for such a heinous act of beating up students, assaulting female students and staff and vandalising property of the organisation,” Kader Siddique told journalists outside Gonoshasthaya Kendra after his visit.

Vandals broke the windows, doors and looted office equipment of a building of Gonoshasthaya Kendra in Savar yesterday, amid cases being filed against its founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury.

The attackers also hung a banner reading, “Cotton Textile Crafts Ltd” in front of the PHA Bhaban.

Since October 15, five cases have been lodged against Zafrullah, accusing him of land grabbing, extortion and stealing fish and fruits from locals.

What happened yesterday?

Vandals broke the windows, doors and looted office equipment of a building of Gonoshasthaya Kendra in Savar yesterday, amid cases being filed against its founder Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury.

The attackers also hung a banner reading, “Cotton Textile Crafts Ltd” in front of the PHA Bhaban.

Gonoshasthaya employees said the vandals started attacking in the morning and continued throughout the day.

Visiting the site yesterday, our correspondent saw that the main entrance, glass fittings, and part of the boundary walls were broken.

What happened to Limon?

LLM student Limon told The Daily Star that he was attacked when he tried to save female students from being harassed.

Limon came under the national spotlight in 2011, after a Rab team shot him, “having mistaken” him for a criminal. His injured leg had to be amputated.

What are the cases against Zafrullah?

Since October 15, five cases have been lodged against Zafrullah, accusing him of land grabbing, extortion and stealing fish and fruits from locals in Savar.

Who are the attackers?

According to Sheikh Alamgir, administration officer of Gonoshasthaya Kendra, about 100 people, led by those who recently filed the cases against Zafrullah Chowdhury, entered the PHA Bhaban in the campus and started breaking the windows, taking away the computers, TVs, and CCTV cameras. They hurled abuse at women staff and tried to break into a female students’ dormitory.

A written complaint was also filed but police did not record it as a GD, Alamgir said.

However, Javed Masud, officer-in-charge (investigation) of Ashulia Police Station, said a police team visited the scene and denied receiving any written complaint.
