Cops beat up doctors at BSMMU

Cops beat up doctors at BSMMU

Allegations show that police personnel charged batons on the doctors on Sunday who have been agitating against reported irregularities in the recruitment test in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).

However, police and BSMMU administration have informed that no such thing has happened. 557 doctors participated in the recruitment test of BSMMU which was held on 20 March. 180 medical officers and 20 dentists were supposed to be recruited through this selection exam. But over one hundred doctors started demonstrating as soon as the results of the recruitment test were published on 12 May.

The demonstrators have complained that the exam results were tampered by BSMMU authority to select their favoured candidates through nepotism.  60 to 70 demonstrating doctors tried to enter the Vice Chancellor's office at BSMMU on Sunday noon while they were obstructed by police and ansar members.

BSMMU Vice Chancellor Dr. Kanak Kanti Barua told reporters, "Some of the demonstrators had a little jostling with ansar members. Now everything is fine." Abul Hasan, Officer in Charge of Shahbagh police station said that police did not beat up anyone on Sunday at BSMMU.
