He said police will press charges against six people including the attacker Foyzur Hasan alias Foyez as prime suspect. The other five accused are- Foyzur’s friend Sohag Mia, father Mawlana Atiqur Rahman, mother Minara Begum, uncle Foyzur Rahman and brother Enamul Hasan.

The charge-sheet will be filed under section 8, 11, 12 and 13 of Anti-terrorism Act, 2009, the commissioner added.

SUST students nabbed the youth from the spot and confined him at the academic building. He was also given a good thrashing. Afterwards, members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) took him to custody for interrogation.

Zafar Iqbal was given primary treatment at Sylhet Osmani Medical College Hospital and then airlifted to Dhaka’s Combined Military Hospital (CMH). He was released from hospital on March 14 after recovery.
