"The situation is normal in the area. Other perpetrators who were involved in the attack will be apprehended after investigation."

On Saturday night, a large number of activists of the Islamist group took to the streets in Chhatak and staged demonstrations over the news that Hefazat Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque had been kept in police custody at a resort in Narayanganj.

The Hefazat men allegedly attacked the police station, pelting brick chips and vandalizing its waiting room. 

Police fired blanks in self-defence and later detained nine suspects.

At least eight policemen were injured in the attack.

Additional law enforcement officials were deployed in the area to deter any further incidents.
