>violence erupts after Tarique’s injury news

>RIOTS broke out in a vast area of the capital today as pro-BNP students went on a rampage on and around campuses of Dhaka University, Dhaka College and Buet leaving one person dead and eight others injured. (Full report)
The violence sparked as news spread in the city that ailing BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Tarique Rahman injured himself in custody of law enforcers slipping on a bathroom floor.
The mob also vandalised around 30 vehicles and set two ablaze during the rioting.
In a related late development in Bogra, BNP backed Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) activists set fire to the engine of a train in Gabtoli area, around 8:00pm. Earlier, they staged demonstrations and blocked roads and railways protesting government’s ‘disregard’ towards Tarique.
Around 2:00pm in the capital, JCD activists torched a microbus on Mirpur Road near Dhaka College, leading to an explosion of the vehicle’s CNG cylinder, a splinter from which hit Jahangir Alam, a cloth trader, in the chest.
He was rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) where he died, an hour into his admission.
“We walked about 40 yards past the burning microbus, when suddenly we heard a huge bang and instantly Jahangir collapsed on the road groaning in pain,” Jahangir’s friend Sanaullah, who was accompanying him, told The Daily Star.
