Leaders and activists of Hefazat-e-Islam laid siege to Dhaka on May 5, 2013. In the name of the blockade, Hefazat workers vandalized and set fire to vehicles and public and private facilities in Motijheel, Paltan and Arambagh areas in the capital with sticks, sharp weapons and firearms. A case was filed with the Paltan police station.
Recently, Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh carried out violent and destructive activities at various places including Baitul Mukarram Mosque, Paltan and Jatrabari. Later, several cases were filed with different police stations in the capital. Various government intelligence agencies, including the police, are investigating the case.
