Head of student association abused in Khartoum

The head of a university students’ association says he was taken by the security agents, and beaten in an office before his release.

The head of El Nilein University Students’ Association in El Manaseer, northern Sudan, was held at the centre of Khartoum on Monday, allegedly by security agents, and beaten in an office before he was released.

Mohamed El Nazir told Radio Dabanga that “a security officer approached me, and told me to accompany him outside the university building. There were seven people there, who dumped me in the back of a vehicle, blindfolded me, and took me somewhere”.

El Nazir said that he was beaten and his clothes were ripped off, before they released him at a dark place near the university, late on Monday evening.
