Legal actions will be taken against the Jagannath University (JnU) students if they are found guilty of assaulting a traffic sergeant in Dhaka, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said today.
“I want to say clearly that no one is above the law,” the DMP boss made the remarks while addressing a programme at the DMP headquarters.
An attempt to murder case was filed against 30 to 40 anonymous JU students and three bus drivers yesterday over beating up a traffic sergeant for stopping three university buses travelling on the wrong side in the capital.

In the case statement, the sergeant said drivers of three BRTC double-decker buses carrying JnU students towards Farmgate drove through the wrong side on Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue at Bangla Motor intersection around 5:00pm on Monday.
DMP officials have already held a meeting with the JnU authorities, the commissioner said adding that “We have told the JnU authorities that if the buses of this institution, which has a long heritage, take the wrong side of the road, the general people will also be motivated to violate traffic rules,” Asaduzzaman further said.
