At least 30 students of Dhaka Medical College Hospital were injured in a clash at Dr Fazle Rabbi Hall at Bakshi Bazar on Friday.
Among them, 23 were treated at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
Students had an altercation earlier in the day as one group wanted to play cricket and the other football at the hall’s field.
"Though the problem was initially resolved, the two groups fought after 2pm," said Kabir Hossain Hawlader, officer-in-charge of Chawkbazar Police Station.
Sub-Inspector Abdur Rahman Khan of the DMCH Police Camp said injured students were rushed to the hospital between 2:30pm and 3pm.
