At least 10 people were injured in a clash between police and workers of readymade garment (RMG) factories in the Ashulia industrial area of Dhaka during the workers’ demo for the seventh consecutive day on Sunday.

Thousands of workers of several garment factories in the area blocked road and staged demonstration since morning in different areas of Ashulia, including Unique, Jamgara, Beron and Narsighopur area, demanding cancellation of ‘discriminatory wage board’ announced by the government for them.

A chase and counter chase took place between police members and workers when police tried to disperse them, leaving 10 people injured.

Shaminur Rahman, director of Industrial Police-1, said additional law enforcers were deployed in Savar and Ashulia industrial area to avoid chaos.
