Day-long hartal underway in Manikchhari upazila
The day-long hartal in Manikchhari upazila, enforced by Parbatya Bangali Chhatra Parishad, protesting an alleged rape incident, is underway peacefully.
No vehicle was seen plying the roads while no long-route bus left the upazila.
The leaders and activists of the Parishad also took part in picketing in different parts of the upazila.
Additional police forces have been deployed to avoid any untoward situation.
Earlier on November 17, a gang of musked miscreants picked up a woman from Kumari Para village and violated her.
Later, a case was filed against 7-8 unnamed people with Manikchhari Police Station, according to a news agency.
