Hefazat, police clash in Gazipur; 20 injured

At least 20 people were injured on Friday when supporters of Hefazat-e-Islam clashed with police at Gazipur’s Chandona.

The skirmish disrupted traffic at Board Bazar and surrounding areas.

Hefazat activists said they organised a procession from Chandona Chaurasta Jame Mosjid after the Jum’a prayers as part of their group’s protest programme.

A clash broke out after police charged batons, they claimed.

Mizanur Rahman, inspector of GMP's Basan Police Station said they were forced to retaliate when brick chips were hurled at them from the procession.
