Fakhrul claimed BNP does not know who these “infiltrators” are, who were involved in the incident. He said: "We are protesting peacefully and trying to engage peaceful politics. The government is trying to disrupt it intentionally and trying to keep the BNP away from the upcoming election”. BNP activists allegedly snatched two activists from a prison van after attacking the police and vandalized the prison van in front of the High Court on Tuesday. Three policemen were injured in the attack. The incident occurred around 3pm Tuesday when the motorcade of party Chairperson Khaleda Zia was passing through the High Court area on the way to her Gulshan home from a court in Bakshibazar.
