Expelled BCL leader Iffat innocent, reinstated to her post

BCL press release says

Dhaka University’s Sufia Kamal Hall BCL unit President Iffat Jahan Isha was reinstated to her post today three days after she was expelled from the front organisation of the ruling Awami League (AL).

The decision of her reinstatement was announced this morning as no evidence was found on the allegation brought against Iffat, said a press release signed by BCL president and general secretary.

“The probe body finds Iffat innocent,” reads the press release.

Iffat was expelled by Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) early Wednesday as she allegedly tortured two students of the DU hall on Tuesday.

The DU authority suspended Iffat from the university immediately after the news of torturing the two female students spread. The incident sparked a protest among the Sufia Kamal students on Tuesday night.

The four-member probe body was formed by the BCL yesterday to investigate the matter. It was asked to submit the report within 24 hours.

On Wednesday, some photos of a victim went viral on social media around 1:00am claiming that she is being tortured by the BCL leaders for taking part in the quota reform demonstrations.

According to some residential students of the hall, BCL Sufia Kamal Hall unit President Iffat Jahan Isha was torturing three students of the hall inside a room around 12:30am for joining the quota-reform protest.
