BCL men wanted to pass without examination
Live Correspondent: The teachers of Rajshahi Polytechnic Institute noticed, to their astonishment, that some of the students were whiling away the hours. “They were not writing at all,” Principal Farid Uddin Ahmed said yesterday, describing how he drew the wrath of Bangladesh Chhatra Legaue activists who would throw him into a pond about two months later.
When the teachers asked the students what was going on, the examinees simply said that their senior BCL leaders assured them of good grades even if they didn’t write anything on the answer script, the principal said.
The BCL men then asked the authorities to make sure the activists pass the exam. After he was assaulted on Saturday, Ahmed filed a case with Chandrima Police Station, accusing 50 unnamed and eight named BCL men.
Last month, about 150 BCL activists did not attend their midterm examinations. The administration then asked them to bring in their guardians to the institute before the final exams.
He was attacked a few hours later. The teachers, students and officials of the institute refrained from academic activities yesterday and demonstrated on campus. They demanded suspension of student politics on the campus and tore posters and banners of BCL.
