22 Jamaat men held in capital

Edit Date:7/9/2011 12:00:00 AM

 22 activists of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami were picked up from the capital in the early hours of the 48-hour countrywide hartal called by BNP-led four-party alliance on Wednesday.

Partners of BNP led four-party alliance including Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh also simultaneously enforced the shutdown since 6:00am Wednesday.

The shutdown was called to protest the scrapping of the caretaker government provision from the constitution, price hike of essentials, deteriorating law and order, crisis of gas-electricity-water and
share market scam.

Kazi Wazed Ali, officer-in-charge (OC) of Mirpur Police Station, said more than 100 activists of Jamaat brought out a procession in Mirpur in the morning. When the procession reached Senpara Parbata at about 6:15am, a team of police led by Assistant Commissioner (AC) of Pallabi Zone Siraj Amin and OC of Kafrul Police Station Abdul Latif resisted them.

Being resisted, the activists hurled brick chips on the law enforcers, leaving AC Siraj Amin and OC Abdul Latif injured. Mirpur and Kafrul police, on information, rushed to the spot, charged batons and dispersed the activists. They also picked up eight Jamaat workers from the spot, OC Wazed Ali said.

Meanwhile, almost all shops and business establishments and educational institutions remained closed and most of the motor vehicles went off the streets. Rickshaws are seen plying as usual. Law enforcing agencies have been deployed in different strategic points in the city to maintain law and order.

The hartal has put the nation virtually on a six-day “holiday” as an alliance of 12 parties led by Bangladesh Khelafat Majlish will enforce a 30-hour shutdown from Sunday after two weekly holidays on Friday and Saturday.
