Miscreants torched a BRTC bus carrying Agrani Bank staff in Khilgaon on the first day of the 48-hour blockade called by BNP and like-minded parties.

The incident took place in Taltala area around 8:30am on Wednesday.

According to media cell sources of fire service, two units of Khilgaon fire station reached the spot under police protection and extinguished the fire.

The opposition BNP has announced another 48-hour blockade starting Wednesday morning as the party and its allies enforce a nationwide blockade set to end early Tuesday.

The tenth phase of the blockade started at 6am on Wednesday and will continue till Friday 6am.

BNP and like-minded parties observed a nationwide dawn-to-dusk hartal on October 29 in protest against the attacks on BNP’s grand rally at Naya Paltan that ended amid the incidents of torching vehicles and clashes, leaving three people dead.

Half an hour into the start of BNP's much-talked-about grand rally at Naya Paltan on October 28, BNP leaders and workers locked in a clash with the ruling party activists and police at Kakrail. The violent clashes soon spread around Naya Paltan, foiling the rally midway.
