RMG workers have been protesting in Savar, and different parts of Dhaka, since Sunday

At least 30 people have been injured in a clash between ready-made garment (RMG) industry workers and police in Baran area of Ashulia, Savar.

The workers and police clashed when police fired tear shells and blank shots to disperse the workers on Thursday. They were protesting in the area, demanding changes to the newly-announced wage structure.

Police also baton charged the workers to disperse them.  

In retaliation, the RMG workers hurled brickbats at the members of the law enforcement agencies.  

Earlier in the day, vehicular movement on the Zirabo-Bishmail Highway and Abdullahpur-Bipile Road was disrupted when the protesters blocked them. 

Confirming the matter, Ashulia Industrial Police (Dhaka 1) SP Sana Saminur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune: “They have taken up positions on the roads connecting to Zirabo-Bishmail Highway and Abdullahpur-Bipile Road after we dispersed them.”

Earlier he said no unrest was taking place in Savar.

Workers of several garment factories have been protesting in Savar, and different parts of Dhaka since Sunday; demanding the discrepancies of the newly-announced wage structure be removed.
