Saturday, 30 November 2013
An activist of Islami Chhatra Shibir was shot dead and 10 people were injured as blockade supporters clashed with policemen in Kotchandpur upazila headquarters on the first day of the opposition’s nationwide 72-hour road-rail-waterway blockade on Saturday.
The deceased was identified as Israil Hossain,18, a local activist of Jamaat’s student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir.
Witnesses said when some blockade supporters were picketing at the bus stand area in the town police chased them, triggering a clash in the morning.
At one stage, police opened fire on the opposition activists to disperse them, leaving Israil Hossain dead on the spot.
Eighteen-party alliance called a daylong hartal in Kochandpur and Moheshpur upazilas for Sunday protesting the killing.
