RMG workers ransack factory demanding manager's removal

Workers of Esarotex Knitwear at Notun Bazar in Sreepur of Gazipur ransacked the factory yesterday demanding removal of its administrative manager.
They went on a rampage on the ground, fourth and sixth floors in the afternoon alleging that some people hired by Manager (Admin) Sumit Borua attacked them Thursday while they were demonstrating in the factory demanding a pay raise.
Witnesses said around 1,400 workers chanted slogans against Sumit and started vandalising machines, computers and furniture.
Later, they blocked Dhaka-Mymensingh highways near the factory.
Following the blockade, industrial police fired tear gas and shotguns to disperse them, said Gazipur Industrial Police Inspector Helal Uddin.
The workers claimed around 30 of them  were injured in police action.
However, police said no one was injured.
On the removal, Sumit, denying his involvement in the attack, said he did not know about the attack and the workers' demand was illogical.
