Section 144 in Phulbaria, cases filed

Mymensingh: The local authorities have imposed section 144 in Mymensingh’s Phulbaria municipality area to avert untoward situation.

The move was taken following the Sunday’s clash that left at least two people dead.

The restriction has been imposed from 9.00am on Monday and will be effective until further notice.

Phulbaria UNO Lira Tarofdar confirmed the matter.

On Sunday, two people, including a college teacher, were killed and 50 other injured as police charged batons on them during a demonstration.

According to local sources, teachers and students of Phulbaria Degree College brought out a procession in the district town, demanding nationalisation of the college.

The agitators blockaded the Phulbaria-Mymensigh Highway to press home their demand. They locked into a clash with the law enforcers when police tried to disperse them.

Meanwhile, two separate cases have been filed in this connection. The brother of a deceased filed a case. On the other hand, police filed another case accusing unknown 400/500 people.
