Report against 25 student rights activists on August 13


The court has set August 13 as the date for filing the investigation report against 25 people, including the former president of the Dhaka University Branch Student Rights Parishad, Aktar Hossain, in the case filed at the Shahbag police station in the capital on charges of beating and attempted murder.

Sunday (July 7) was fixed as the day for submitting the investigation report of the case. On this day, the investigating officer of the case could not submit the report. For this reason, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate of Dhaka Sultan Sohag Uddin set a new date for submitting the report.

It is said in the complaint of the case that on October 7, 2022, the accused gathered to create an anarchic environment by destabilizing the campus of Dhaka University without informing anyone and gave riotous speeches and slogans. They made ugly comments and statements against the government, the head of government and various ministers and political leaders. When they protested, the accused beat them to death with rods, hockey sticks, and bamboo sticks. At that time, the accused stole 10,500 taka.
