An alleged activist of Chhatra League had his three fingers of the left hand blown off in a blast while “making crude bombs” at his house at Dhaoyakola Namapara of Bogra Sadar upazila, reports agency.
The injured, Khairul Islam Sohag, a first year BA (pass course) student at Government Azizul Haque College, is “active in BCL politics” there.
After the incident on Tuesday afternoon, he was treated at local Thengamara Rafatullah Community Hospital, but his name was not registered there apparently in a bid to hide his identity, said hospital sources.
When newsmen went there, relatives shifted him to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital with the help of police.
Locals alleged that all bomb-making materials were removed from the house of the “BCL activist” immediately after the explosion. According to them, Sohag was making and selling bombs for long.
However, his family has denied the allegation and said Sohag lost his fingers while making crackers for blasting those in a picnic.
BCL, pro-Awami League student organisation, has denied its link with him.
