A Dhaka University student has allegedly been pushed from a running train following an argument with a fellow passenger.
The incident took place on Saturday evening at Kaliakair upazila in Gazipur in the intercity train Silkcity Express heading towards Dhaka from Rajshahi.
Mirazul Islam Sheble, a fourth-year student of theatre and performance studies department and a residential student of Shaheed Zahurul Haque Hall, sustained severe injuries in the head, forehead and leg.
The Gazipur police rescued him and rushed him to Kaliakair Upazila Health Complex for primary treatment.
Sheble was later transferred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital under the supervision of Dhaka University authority.

The victim student said that on Saturday he boarded the Dhaka-bound intercity train from Rajshahi. ‘As the train was very crowded, I stood at the door of the train. I had an argument with a fellow passenger about keeping the bag at the door,’ he added.
‘When the train reached Gazipur, the passenger suddenly pushed me from behind. After I regained consciousness, I called 999 first and the former university proctor, and my friends.’
Sheble added that it was too late for the police to come; after about half an hour, the police came and admitted him to Kaliakair Upazila Health Complex in Gazipur.
