Police have filed a case against 1,000 Jamaat-e-Islami and its student body, Islami Chhatra Shibir, men for attacking police and obstructing them from discharging duties in Chirirbandar upazila of Dinajpur.

Jamaat-Shibir men, in a pre-planned attack, pounced on a policeman and thrashed his head with bricks in Chirirbandar of Dinajpur during a countrywide daylong shutdown on Tuesday.
