Bangladesh Imprisons 4 University Professors for Inciting Riots


A Bangladeshi court sentenced four university professors to two years in prison each for inciting violent student riots in August.

Authorities say the professors, from Rajshahi University, were found guilty of breaking emergency laws banning protests and all gatherings.

The protests, from August 20th through the 22nd, left one person dead and hundreds injured in battles with police. Following the violence, the military-backed government imposed a curfew in cities across the country.

The unrest began with a clash at Dhaka University between soldiers and students, who demanded the removal of troops from the campus and a restoration of democracy.

The government later ordered troops to withdraw.

Soldiers had been stationed at the university since January, when the government imposed a state of emergency and banned all political activities and demonstrations.
