Strikers-police clash in Comilla; 2 cops hurt

Two policemen were injured in clashes with shutdown supporters in Comilla's Laksham upazila on Wednesday morning during the 48-hour shutdown of the Jamaat-e-Islami.

The shutdown was called after International Crimes Tribunal awarded death sentence to Jamaat’s Assistant Secretary General Abdul Quader Molla on Tuesday.

Strike supporters brought out a procession on the Comilla-Chandpur road around 8:30am. Police rushed to the spot to disperse them.

Witnesses said police and strike supporters engaged in a pitched battle and cat-and-mouse chase during this time.

Laksham police station Officer-in-charge Abul Khair told Dhaka Tribune police fired rubber bullets to disperse picketers.

“Two of our men were hurt hit by stones pelted by them. The injuries are not serious.”

He could not tell if any of the picketers were injured.
