Nabinagar Police Station Officer-in-charge Md Imtiaz Ahmed sustained head injury in the attack and was rushed to a local hospital, reports our correspondent quoting Ali Arshad, officer-in-charge of Bijoynagar Police Station.

Additional Magistrate of Brahmanbaria Shahanur Alam said the section 144 has been imposed in Brahmanbaria Sadar, Ashuganj, Bijoynagar and Sorail upazila from 6:00am to 12:00 midnight to avoid any untoward incident centering the visit of the minister, who is scheduled to inaugurate a newly built upazila livestock hospital there.

The local Awami League leaders became furious and enforced the hartal as Obaidul Moktadir, lawmaker from Brahmanbaria-3 constituency, was not invited at the programme.

Meanwhile, supporters and activists of Awami League and Jubo League brought out processions at different places of the town protesting the minister’s visit.
