Road communications between the port city and other parts of the country remained suspended since Sunday noon as no long-route bus left Chittagong due to the hartal

Vehicular movement on Chittagong-Khagrachhari road, which remained suspended for the past three days due to blockade by Hefazat-e-Islami activists after a clash with police, resumed on Sunday night.

Hathazari Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Ruhul Amin said the vehicular movement on the road resumed around 10pm after the Hefazat men withdrew the blockade following a fruitful meeting with the local administration.

Allama Azizul Haque Islamabadi, organising secretary of central unit of Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh, said: “The local administration sat with us several times and after getting assurance the Madrasha student withdrew their blockade from the road after the end of our day long hartal.”

The nationwide dawn-to-dusk hartal, enforced by Hefajat-e-Islam, passed off on Sunday amid sporadic incidents of clashes, vandalism, arson attacks and roads blockades at different parts of the country.

Hefajat called the general strike protesting the killing of its activists and the "attack on them by ruling party men" Friday during anti-Modi demonstrations in Dhaka, Chittagong and other districts.

Road communications between the port city and other parts of the country remained suspended since Sunday noon as no long-route bus left Chittagong due to the hartal.

Some students of Al Jamiatul Ahlia Darul Ulum Moinul Islam Madrasah cut roads and created a number of holes on Chittagong-Khagrachhari highway early Sunday, disrupting communications on the road.

 A clash involving Hefazat supporters and police left four people dead and at least 15 others injured at Hathazari in Chittagong on Friday.

The clash took place when policed opened fire after a group of protestors attacked Hathazari thana compound and Hathazari land office and set fire to a vehicle.
