On Saturday, Saimum Islam, Secretary of Jhangirnagar Theatre and a protestor of ongoing movement at JU, alleged that an organising secretary named Abhishek Mandal of JU unit of BCL assaults him. Saimum Islam filed a complaint with the proctor seeking justice.

I demand reconsideration of the decision.”
