15 injured as cops, RMG workers clash in N'ganj

At least 15 RMG workers and pedestrians were injured during a clash between workers of an export-oriented RMG factory and police in Rupganj upazila of Narayanganj yesterday.

Workers of Antim Knitting Dyeing and Finishing factory held a demonstration at Baropa demanding that the owners open the factory and pay their arrears. When they tried to blockade the Dhaka-Sylhet Highway, police fired rubber bullets and tear gas shells, and charged batons to disperse agitated workers, who retaliated by throwing brickbats. The injured were taken to local hospitals for primary treatment.
