Chhatra League-police clash leaves 19 injured in Chittagong
A total of four policemen and 15 activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League, the student wing of ruling Awami League, were injured in a clash between the two at Kazir Dewri in Chittagong yesterday. During the clash, at least nine vehicles, including three human haulers, three rickshaws, a private car and a motorbike, and three roadside shops were vandalised by the Chhatra League activists. Sources said the clash started around 4pm when at least 450 BCL leaders and activists led by Chittagong Chhatra League President Imran Ahmed Imu and General Secretary Nurul Azim Roney tried to vandalise an under-construction site of a swimming pool being constructed by Chittagong Jila Krira Shangstha (CJKS). SM Mostain Hossen, deputy commissioner of Chittagong Metropolitan Police, said: “The Chhatra League activists gathered at Kazir Dewri for a demonstration without permission. Police resisted them and later arranged permission for them, but the activists became violent with the law enforcement officials.” He added that the activists started throwing stones and brick-chips at the police officers when they were stopped from demonstrating, leading to the police officers being injured. Nurul Azim Rony, general secretary of BCL Chittagong unit, said that the organisation will arrange even tougher programmes if the construction work does not stop.
