The clash took place when police fired several teargas shells and charged batons on the workers who tried to take the position on the road this morning.
The agitated workers continued their protest for the fourth consecutive day by staging demonstration demanding cancellation of the ‘discriminatory’ wage board announced by the government for them.
According to police sources, the workers started to gather in front of their respective factories from 9:00 am and tried to lay a siege on Dhaka-Mymensingh highway at the airport intersection.
Police foiled their attempt. Later, the garment workers carried out vandalism at several factories in the area.
