Activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) allegedly attacked on daily Amar Desh acting editor Mahmudur Rahman in Kushtia on Sunday.
He came under attack while he went out of courtroom around 4.30 pm. BCL men hurled brick chips targeting Mahmudur and he was seriously injured in the attack.
Principal Amirul Islam, senior lawyer of Kushtia Bar Association confirmed the matter.
Earlier BCL men allegedly confined Mahmudur Rahman in a courtroom after the court granted him bail in a case filed for making derogatory remarks about Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Tulip Siddiq.
Kushtia Senior Judicial Magistrate MM Morshed granted him permanent bail around 12 noon in a defamation case filed by district unit BCL president Yasir Arafat Tushar on December 10, 2107.
Earlier, Mahmudur appeared before the court.
After he was granted bail, a group of BCL leaders and activists led by the district unit president took position outside the courtroom hearing that Mahmudur Rahman had been granted bail.
The BCL members also chanted slogans against the Bangla daily acting editor at that time.
