Section 144 imposed in Ctg

Local administration imposed section 144 in Quadernagar area of Rangunia upazila in Chittagong as ruling Awami League and main opposition BNP called separate programmes at the same venue and same time Friday.

To ward off any untoward incident in the area, the authority clamped the ban on gathering at Quadernagar from 10:00am, that will continue until the sun sets, said Monzur Morshed, officer-in-charge of Rangunia Police Station.

BNP and its associated bodies organised an Iftar party in the area, while Awami League was scheduled to form a human chain at the same venue demanding capital punishment for the war criminals, reports our correspondent in Chittagong.

The opposition party has organised their programme a week ago while the AL called its programme on Thursday, the OC added.
