Eyewitness said the cultural leaders and activists took their position in front of Kazi Nazrul Islam Auditorium to stop cinema produced by JAAZ Multimedia as it could create anarchy in the campus.

They made discussion with the university proctor in this regard but failed to reach a solution.

At one stage, they told the spectators not to enter the auditorium. Following the incident, some Chhatra League leaders and activists attack and beaten them up, leaving Mithun Chandra Hemanta’s hand broken, they added.

RU proctor professor Lutfor Rahman said, “I went to make them understand but they did not listen to me.”

RU unit general secretary Faisal Ahmed Runu said they visited the spot and found the cultural leaders assault the proctor.

JAAZ Multimedia took rent the university auditorium for displaying the cinema here as the city’s cinema hall ‘Upohar’ closed since October 11.
