Bangladesh Acquits University Teachers


A Bangladeshi court has acquitted four university professors charged with inciting students during violent anti-government protests last year.

The teachers at Dhaka University were arrested last August in connection with campus unrest that left one person dead and more than 100 injured.

Eleven students were also acquitted.

However, lawyers say the students and teachers continue to face charges from a second case related to the violence and will not be released.

Four other students were sentenced in absentia to two-years imprisonment and a fine.
The violence was sparked by an alleged assault on students by troops during a football match at the Dhaka University campus. Following the protests, authorities placed all major cities including the capital, Dhaka under curfew for several days.

Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has more on the story.
