Situation now under control, say police

At least two cops were injured in a clash involving Chhatra Dal, police, and Chhatra League activists in Bogra during the nationwide hartal enforced by Hefazat-e-Islam.

Police arrested two Chhatra Dal leaders – Nandigram upazila’s Jewel Hossain, 26, and Rabiul Islam, 27 – following the incident that took place at the district’s Majgram area on Sunday afternoon.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Nandigram police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Kamrul Islam, said: “A case will be filed soon over the attack on law enforcers.”

According to police and witnesses, local leaders, activists of Jubo Dal, Swechchashebak Dal, and Chhatra Dal, brought out a procession in support of the hartal in Nandigram at around 4pm on Sunday.

They then gathered in front of the Majgram BNP party office and continued to demonstrate.

A clash erupted when Chhatra League men brought out a procession against the Hefezat hartal and chased those who were supporting it.

Nandigram police, after being informed, rushed to the spot, charged batons and dispersed the two sides, and brought the situation under control.

Nandigram police station OC Kamrul said: “Leaders and activists of Jubo Dal, Swachchasebak Dal, and Chhatra Dal wanted to continue demonstrating in support of the hartal after the Chhatra League men left the spot.

“They then attacked us when we refused to allow them to bring out a rally.”

“Sub-Inspector (SI) Reza and Constable Faruq were injured in the attack. They were taken to the local health complex for treatment,” the police OC added.

Nandigram upazila Jubo Dal Convener Shafiul Alam Sumon, claimed: "Chhatra League leaders and activists attacked us during our rally. The police also did the same.

“We did not attack anyone.”

Meanwhile, upazila Chhatra League President Tuhin Ahmed claimed that it was the Jubo Dal leaders and activists who had attacked them first.

“We did not attack their [Chhatra dal] rally. It is them who attacked us,” he added.
