At least eight people were injured in a clash between two groups of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) at Islamic University (IU) in Kushtia on Wednesday evening over a trivial matter.
Witnesses said the clash erupted near Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Hall around 7pm following an altercation between Oshan and Jhinuk when the latter slapped the former.
Later, the two BCL groups swooped on each other with sharp weapons, leaving at least eight people from the both groups injured.
The injured were taken to university’s central hospital for treatment.
On information, IU Proctor Prof Paresh Chandra Barman went to the spot and tried to bring the situation under control.
