25 injured in police-RMG workers clash in Gazipur
At least 25 people, including police officials, were injured in a clash between ready-made garments (RMG) workers and law enforcement officials in Kaliakair, Gazipur on Sunday morning. Workers of ATS Apparels Ltd observed strike and staged a demonstration in front of their factory as their arrears were not paid in due time, which ended on Saturday. The demonstration turned violent when police tried to disperse the workers. Meanwhile, the agitated workers vandalized the factory and blockaded the Dhaka-Tangail highway. Nur-e-Alam Siddiqui, assistant superintendent of industrial police in Gazipur, said: “Police fired several rounds of rubber bullets and tear gas shells to bring the situation under control.” He added that seven police members were injured in the clash. The injured workers and policemen were admitted to several local hospitals and clinics.
