Conflicts have been escalating between two groups for some time, say locals

A street vendor has lost his life after two groups of people engaged in clash over establishing their supremacy in setting up make-shift shops in Narayanganj city on Thursday.  After the incident, additional police forces have been deployed in the St Paul’s Church on the Bangabandhu Road to prevent further clash.

The deceased has been identified as Zubayer Hossain, an 18-year-old street vendor in the area, confirmed Narayanganj district Additional Superintendent of Police Nazmul Hassan.

The late Zubayer Hossain was the son of Amjad Hossain of North Masdair area under Fatullah thana.

According to locals and police, there had been rising conflicts for long between two groups of street vendors over setting up make-shift shops in front of the St Paul’s Church on the Bangabandhu Road.

On Thursday, two vendors, Shwapan and Saiful, got into an argument regarding setting up shops.

At one point, the argument escalated to a scuffle when other vendors tried to intervene in resolving the matter. Soon after, some outsiders joined them, and a clash ensued when unidentified men stabbed Zubayer Hossain and fled the scene.

The victim was brought to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) where duty doctors declared him dead.

Additional SP Nazmul said that they have collected evidence from the scene and efforts were underway to arrest the perpetrators.

On January 16, 2018, nearly 50 people including, NCC Mayor Selina Hayat Ivy, were injured in a clash between street vendors.

According to the Narayanganj City Corporation (NCC), even though vendors have been allocated some shops in a hawker’s market, they sell it off and insist on setting up their businesses on the roadside.
