A young woman was stripped naked by some stalkers at Dhaka University on Tuesday evening
The woman along with other women went to the university on the occasion of Pahela Baishakh at about 6.30pm. When the woman reached near the TSC area, a group of stalkers appeared there in the darkness and intercepted her. At one stage, they stripped off the cloth of the woman.
Witnesses said policemen who were present there played the role of silent spectators. Taking advantage of the law enforcers' silent role, the stalkers turned more violent and swopped on other women and touched different parts of their bodies. Finding no other alternatives, the victims had burst into tears and tried to escape from the place.
Sources said the stalkers belonged to a particular student organisation.
During the incident a number of students rushed to the spot in rescuing the women. Some of the students were physically assaulted as they tried to intercept the stalkers.
The injured students also included Liton Nandi, president of the Dhaka University unit of Bangladesh Chhatra Union.
In protest against the heinous incident, Bangladesh Chhatra Union and Progotishil Chhatra Jote will hold separate rallies on the Dhaka University campus at 11am on Wednesday.
Besides, the Bangladesh Chhatra Union has also convened a press conference at the Dhaka University Sangsad at 11am on Wednesday, said Khadija Sultana, office secretary of Dhaka University unit of Bangladesh Chhatra Union on Tuesday night.
