Ticket seekers clash with cops at Mirpur

Desperate for tomorrow’s Asia Cup final between Bangladesh and India tickets, ticket seekers clashed with law enforcers at Mirpur-10 this morning.

Authorities suspended selling tickets after the incident.

The incident took place in front of a branch of the United Commercial Bank Limited just after the bank authorities started selling advance tickets around 10:00am.

The ticket seekers burst into protests due to shortage of tickets against their demand, reports the Bangla daily Prothom Alo.
