Meherpur BCL men clash with cops; 4 detained
Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists clashed with police during a Victory Day programme at Meherpur district stadium on Sunday, leaving three policemen injured, reports UNB.
Law enforcers arrested four BCL men including district BCL president Abdus Salam Badhon over the incident. Other arrestees are BCL activists Ibrahim, Shishit and Ashik.
Additional superintendent of police Sheikh Mostafizur Rahman said BCL activist Imran was assaulting schoolboy Suruj Ali, 15, around 11:00am while the Victory Day parade was going on at the stadium.
On-duty policemen detained Ibrahim as he refused to listen to their request to stop beating the schoolboy.
Being angered at the detention of their fellow, other BCL men tried to snatch Ibrahim from police, triggering a clash.
At one stage, BCL activists pushed officer-in-charge of Sadar police station Rabiul Islam.
The clash left three policemen, including the OC, injured.
Later, police arrested the four BCL men in this connection.
