The district administration has withdrawn Section 144, which was imposed in Cox's Bazar following Friday's clash, as the first day of Jamaat-enforced 48-hour hartal passed off peacefully in the district yesterday.
While shops kept their shutters closed, rickshaws and auto-rickshaws were seen plying the streets.
Section 144 was withdrawn around 10:00am as normalcy returned to the district, said Md Ruhul Amin, district magistrate.
The indefinite ban on all gatherings (Section 144) was imposed in the beach town following a battle between Jamaat-Shibir men and police on Friday afternoon. At least three of its activists were killed and 50 others, including several policemen, were injured during the clash.
Jamaat-backed "Mukti Parishad", called for the hartal demanding the release of war crimes accused Jamaat Nayeb-e-Ameer Delawar Hossain Sayedee.
Additional members of police, Rapid Action Battalion and Border Guard Bangladesh have been posted at different key points of the district to avert any untoward incident.
Police sued over 6,000 people in four separate cases filed with Cox's Bazar Model Sadar Police Station in connection with Friday's clash.
District Jamaat Ameer Md Shahjahan and the party's Secretary GM Rahim Ullah are among those accused of preventing police from discharging their duties, arson and vandalism of vehicles and bringing out procession without permission from the authorities concerned.
Four sub-inspectors of the police station filed the cases mentioning names of 200 Jamaat-Shibir men yesterday, said Md Jasimuddin, officer-in-charge of the police station.
