AL-BNP clash leaves 40 hurt in Comilla

At least 40 people were injured in a clash between Awami League (AL) and BNP activists at Choumohani in Muradnagar upazila yesterday.

Police said the trouble began at around 2:00pm as AL leader Yusuf Abdullah Harun along with his supporters started a mass contact programme at Panchpukuria of the upazila.

Outraged by this, police said, local BNP men swooped on the AL men, triggering a fierce fight. Twenty-one microbuses used for the mass contact were also damaged.

Fifteen of the injured were admitted to Muradnagar health complex where condition of an AL activist was stated to be critical.
