The DMP boss came up with the remark while briefing reporters about the security measure on the eve of Pohela Boishakh at the DMP media centre.

Replying to a question, the DMP chief said, “The way the attack was carried out seems that the attackers are professional.”

Four cases were filed against unnamed accused following the clash and vandalism in Dhaka University (DU) campus and the VC’s house during the demonstration for the reformation of quota system in government jobs.

DU chief security officer SM Kamrul Ahsan on Thursday filed the case on charge of unauthorised entry, damage and looting goods from the vice chancellor house.
