A crackdown on student protesters engaged in a campaign for safer roads was a ‘ruthless move’ by the government, a senior BNP leader said.
“The government didn’t stop even after setting Chhatra League men after children and young people. They started a savage crackdown on them, aided by the police and RAB,” BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said in a news briefing in Dhaka on Thursday.
“The drive is nothing but a ruthless move against innocent students. We demand an immediate end to the torture on students.”
