Garment Workers Front on Wednesday held a rally in front of Jatiya Press Club demanding justice for RMG worker Sumon Mia who was shot dead allegedly by police on Tuesday in clash between them, reports UNB.

The workers’ rally which was presided over by the organisation’s President Ahsan Habib Bulbul also demanded compensation as well as arrest of those who were responsible for the murder.

Sumon Mia, 22, a worker of Anlima Textile, was killed and 30 others injured in clashes with police during demonstrations at Hemayetpur on Tuesday.

Socialist Workers’ Front President Abdur Razzaque said the wage board formed for the garment workers has implemented a biased salary structure influenced by the factory owners.

“Workers who are the key to garment industries were being beaten and shot at when they demanded justice,” he added.
