Traders, labours clash with BGB in Srimangal, strike called

Srimangal Businessmen Association and transport workers were in a clash with the members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) after some locals beat a BGB member over an altercation on Thursday evening.

Reportedly, over 50 people were injured during the clash, including six with bullets.

Later, the association and the labours enforced a non-stop strike in the upazila from Friday morning.

Sheikh Lutfur Rahman, president of Srimangal Businessmen Association, said that they are observing the strike demanding ‘punishment for the people behind the attack on the locals’.

“We want compensation for the loss and transfer of the BGB members involved in the attack from Srimangal,” he said.

Witnesses said local transport workers beat a BGB officer around 5:30pm following an altercation when he went to ‘Pansi Restaurant’ to take food, leaving him injured.

On information, BGB members from Sector-9 headquarters rushed in and beat traders, transport workers and locals. They also allegedly vandalised several shops and vehicles.

The clash ensued when the traders and transport workers encountered them.

The agitated traders and workers also blocked roads in different places of the upazila.

The situation returned to normalcy around 7:30pm when District Commissioner Tofayel Ahmed rushed in and assured them of forming a probe committee and giving the compensation.

Meanwhile, Mahbubur Rahman, Officer-in-Charge of Srimangal Police Station, said, “The situation is now under control. Additional police have been deployed in the area to avoid further chaos.”

The injured were sent to local hospital for treatment, he added.

All the markets and shops in the upazila are shut and no vehicles are plying on the road since 6:00am, our correspondent reports.

However, Tofayel Ahmed assured the locals saying that a probe committee will be formed very soon to investigate the matter.
