Former Vice-president of Dhaka University Central Students Union (DUCSU) Nurul Haque Nur has sustained injury when police allegedly foiled their anti-Modi protest in Motijheel Police Station area in the city.
Bangladesh Juba Odhikar Parishad and Bangladesh Chhatra Odhikar Parishad, led by VP Nur and others, staged the anti-Modi protest in the area on Thursday.
