At least seven railway policemen were injured as some alleged drug addicts attacked them at Rajshahi railway station today.

Police said the injured include a sub-inspector (SI), an assistant SI and a constable of Government Railway Police (GRP) and four constables of Railway Nirapotta Bahini (RNB).

The seven have been admitted to Rajshahi Police Lines Hospital, said Mustafizur Rahman, a sub-inspector of RNB.

A group of drug addicts severely beat up Kawsar Hossain, 45, a constable of RNB, with bamboo sticks and brickbats at the station platform around 9:30am as he drove them out while taking hemp at the platform around 3:00am, the SI added.

As his colleagues rushed to the spot, the addicts swooped on them, leaving six more law enforcers injured, Mustafizur Rahman told our Rajshahi correspondent.

On information, a team of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police rushed in and fired three shots from their shotguns to disperse the attackers.
