Five people have been arrested over the incident so far.

At least 20 people, including Assistant Commissioner (Land) of Sunamganj Sadar Arif Adnan and some members of law enforcement agencies, were injured in a clash with villagers in Adarbazar area of Sadar upazila on Thursday. 

Police said the district administration started the construction of some news houses on a land as a part of a government project, on the occasion of Mujib Year. 

On Thursday, during the construction work, a group of villagers attacked AC Land Arif Adnan, who was present at the scene, and members of police and Ansar with weapons, leaving them injured. 

Later, Arif told UNB that some villagers had been opposing the construction of houses for a long time, even though the land belonged to the government. 

Five people have been arrested over the incident so far.

Arif said everyone involved in the attack would be brought under justice.

"Police fired blank shots to disperse the villagers. The situation is currently under control. Additional police have been deployed," the assistant commissioner added.
