Police arrested seven people including Vice-President of Dhaka University Central Students' Union (Ducsu) Nurul Haque Nur from a procession in the city's Matshaya Bhaban area on Monday.
Bangladesh Chhatra Odhikar Parishad organised the rally protesting filing of a rape case against six people including Nur with Lalbagh Police Station, reports UNB.
The protesters attacked the law enforcers when it reached Matshaya Bhaban area, said Deputy Commissioner (Media) Walid Hossain of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).
Police arrested seven people from the procession including VP Nur, he said.
Earlier a female student of Dhaka University filed a rape case against six people, including Nur.
Nur was elected VP in last year's Ducsu polls, the first in 28 years. It was marred by allegations of irregularities.
All panels, except that of Bangladesh Chhatra League, boycotted the election.
The ruling party student front dominated the polls but lost the posts of VP and social service affairs secretary.
