6 people, including policemen, were injured during the confrontation

Two Hefazat-e-Islam activists sustained gunshot wounds in Mymensingh on Sunday when they clashed with police during the group’s daylong nationwide strike.

One of the individuals was identified as Alam Miah, 23. The identity of the other person could not be ascertained.

A total of six people, including policemen, were injured during the clash that broke out around 10am on the Dhaka-Mymensingh Highway.

Assistant Superintendent of Police (Mymensingh Sadar Circle) Alauddin said: “Some hartal supporters blocked the highway in the morning. They hurled bricks at policemen when they [police] went to the spot.”

Police fired tear gas shells to disperse the protesters, he added.

“I am not aware of any demonstrators being shot, but a couple of policemen got injured during the clash,” said the ASP.

SI Shafikul Islam of the Mymensingh Medical College Hospital police outpost said of the two persons who were shot, one was receiving medical attention at that hospital, while the other had been sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for better treatment.

Members of Hefazat-e-Islam took positions at various corners of the city and additional police forces have been deployed to keep the situation in check.
