At least two police constables were injured as activists from Islami Chhatra Shibir, the student wing of the country’s Islamist outfit Jamaat-e-Islami, detonated two crude bombs in front of Bogra sadar police station, protesting the Supreme Court verdict against Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Molla.
Angered by the verdict that sentenced Quader Molla to death, the Shibir activists carried out the bombings at around 12:30pm, sources said.
The injured police members are Constables Abdul Kuddus and Rafiqul Islam, who were admitted to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College and Hospital.
The police said a group of Shibir men, all on a sudden, rushed into a flash procession and hurled the bombs on the police members, following the verdict.
Sources said the police fired three rounds of rubber bullets in retaliation, adding that the shibir activists dispersed after the hit-and-run.
No one has been arrested in this connection till the report had been filed.
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Tuesday sentenced Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Molla to death for committing crimes against humanity during the 1971 Liberation War.
