Chattogram University administration with the help of police seized local sharp weapons from Suhrawardy Hall and Shah Amanat Hall of the university during a raid there early Thursday.
The raid was conducted following a clash between two factions of the university branch Chhatra League on Wednesday.
Rabiul Hasan Bhuiyan, proctor of the university, said, "A clash ensued between two groups of Chhatra League over a trivial incident. We brought the situation under control with the help of police. Considering the safety issue of the students, we conducted the raid at the two halls. We recovered various types of local weapons, including ramda, kirich, glass bottles and rods from the two halls."
