So far, police have arrested 14 suspects in three separate cases, all of which were filed by the police on Saturday

As many as 6,500 people have been sued in connection with the series of violent protests carried out under the banner of Hefazat-e-Islam over the past three days in Brahmanbaria town.

So far, police have arrested 14 suspects in three separate cases, all of which were filed by police with Brahmanbaria Sadar Model police station on Saturday afternoon, confirmed Brahmanbaria Superintendent of Police Anisur Rahman.

“Two cases were filed over the attacks on the police superintendent's office and a police outpost under the Sadar Model police station. There are about 4,000-5,000 unnamed accused in the cases," Brahmanbaria Sadar Model police station Inspector (Investigation) Md Shahjahan said.

“Another case was filed in connection to the arson attacks and vandalism of public and private offices at Brahmanbaria’s Medda area, where 1,500 unidentified persons were accused,” he added.

On Friday, a group of Hefazat-e-Islam hardliners clashed with the police during protests against Modi’s visit outside the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in Dhaka. The clashes left a number of people, including journalists, injured.    

Later, Hefazat activists attacked a police station and two government offices in Chittagong. Four people died in the ensuing clashes with the law enforcement officials.

After the mayhem in Chittagong, another man was killed during a clash between Qawmi madrasa students and police in Brahmanbaria. The protesters carried out arson attacks and vandalized the railway station and other establishments throughout the town for the next two days.
