At least 15 activists of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal's Jagannath University unit were injured in an attack allegedly by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists on the campus on Thursday, reports UNB.

Rafikul Islam, president of JCD's university unit, said they came under attack around 9:00am when they brought out a procession on the campus demanding release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.

Some BCL activists chased them when they reached Shanto Chattar of the university and caught some their activists at the main entrance and beat them up mercilessly, he said.

Five of the injured were identified as Rashid, MA Fayej, Jahidul Islam, Jayed Hasan and Saiful HaqueTaz.

Ashraful AlamTiton, convener of JnU election co-ordination committee, said ''We'll not sit idle if anyone creates anarchy in the name of political activities.'

There is no place for elderly people and non-students on the campus, he said, adding ''There will be no obstruction from our side if real students come to the campus."
