In retaliation, the transport workers armed with sticks barged into a university hostel and attacked a student, identified as Mahmudul Hasan Tomal, on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday.

As the news of the attack spread, thanks to social media, students from other hostels of the university rushed to the spot to save Tomal. The transport workers attacked Tomal's rescuers too, leaving 11 injured.

The injured students -- Nurullah Siddique, SM Sohanur Rahman, Ahsanuzzaman, Fazlul Haque, Alim Salehi, Ali Hasan, Rajon Hossain, Mahbubur Rahman, Mahadi Hasan Imon, Miraz Hawladar and Sajeeb Sheikh -- are being treated at Sher-e-Bangla Medical College and Hospital.
