At least 50 people have been injured as the workers of a jute mill locked into sporadic clashes with police in Sharishabari upazila in the district on Thursday evening.

Sharishabari police station Officer-in-Charge Billal Uddin said: “The workers of Alhajj Jute Mill have been staging demonstrations from last couple of day demanding dues and other allowances. They were promised to be paid the dues on Thursday. But, the authorities reportedly started to make excuses without giving them the due salaries.

“At one stage, the agitating workers confined the top officials of the factory and went on a rampage in the factory premises. Later, they locked into clashes with the law enforcers as we went there to rescue the confined officials,” he added.

The one-and-a-half-hour clashes that started at 5pm, left at least 50 people, including eight police members, injured.

Later, police fired 30 rounds of bullets to bring the situation under control and finally managed to calm the situation at 7pm, said police.

The injured have been taking treatment at different hospitals and clinics.
