Update : 20 Oct 2013, 04:48 AM

Local BNP leaders of Chandpur district have observed a dawn to dusk hartal in Kachua upazila yesterday, protesting the death of its upazila vice-president in jail.

Sources said the protesters brought out separate processions in the upazila in support of the hartal. They barricaded the Kachua-Dhaka Highway at Palakhal and Comilla Highway at Jagatpur in the morning.

Later, the activists torched a tree trunk to block the Kachua-Comilla-Chandpur Highway at Subidpur. The incident halted road communication on the highways and traders were forced to keep their shops closed.

On information, police went to the spot and brought the situation under control.

The arrested BNP Vice-President Delwar Hossain Dulal of Kachua upazila passed away on Friday. 

However, BNP claimed that the leader was allegedly tortured to death in police custody.
