Kamaruzzaman Verdict

Jamaat-Shibir clash with cops in Rajshahi

Jamaat-Shibir activists clashed with police and exploded bombs at two places in Rajshahi yesterday after announcement of the verdict in the war crimes case against Jamaat leader Muhammad Kamaruzzaman.
Rajshahi Metropolitan Police Commissioner SM Moniruzzaman said activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and pro-Jamaat Islami Chhatra Shibir barricaded Rajshahi-Naogaon road by felling logs and electricity poles around 4:00pm for half-an-hour. Law enforcers fired rubber bullets, tear gas and sound grenades to disperse the attackers.
Shibir activists put barricade on Kharkhari Bypass Road by burning tyres.
