Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has been deployed in Gazipur on Wednesday. DC Dr Md Dewan Humayan Kabir confirmed the information.

The DC said that four platoons of BGB personnel were deployed at Tongi, Gazipura, Hotaparah, Konabari and Mouchak area of the district to bring the situation under control and to avoid any untoward incident over the ready-made garment (RMG) industry workers demonstration.

BGB members, led by an executive magistrate, patrolled in the areas since this morning, he added.

The workers from different garment factories continued their protest for the fifth consecutive day by staging demonstration demanding cancellation of the ‘discriminatory’ wage board announced by the government for them.

At least 50 people were injured, including eight policemen, as law enforcers clashed with garment workers who blocked road and highway at Savar, Ashulia and Gazipur district this morning.
