Dozens injured in Chittagong, 50 injured in Dhaka protest amid 50th Independence Day celebration
(Asian News Hub) – At least four people were killed and dozens were injured when activists of a non-political Islamic group clashed with police in Bangladesh’s largest port city on Friday afternoon, according to Anadolu agency quoting local police.
Several hundreds of Hefazat-e-Islam activists gathered after Friday prayers in Chittagong to protest the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The police, on the other hand, erected barricades and blocked the roads, infuriating the activists.
The protesters attempted to dismantle the barricades, which sparked the clash. To disperse the demonstrators, police used tear gas shells and live bullets, as well as beating them with batons, according to eyewitnesses.
“Four are dead and their bodies have been taken to the morgue for autopsy,” Alauddin Talukder, assistant sub-inspector of the Chittagong Medical College Police Outpost, told Anadolu Agency.
Modi landed in Dhaka on Friday morning along with his entourage members on a two-day visit to join Bangladesh’s golden jubilee of independence and the 100th birth anniversary of its founding leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Earlier, in Dhaka, dozens of people were wounded, including three journalists, when police used tear gas shells to disperse demonstrators who were planning to march on a major road against the visit of India’s prime minister.
After the weekly Friday prayers, the protesters planned to begin a rally from the northern gate of Baitul Mukarram mosque in Dhaka. However, the police refused to let them allow.
The area quickly became a battleground as some people pelted the police with stones, prompting them to retaliate with tear gas shelling.
Hundreds of plainclothes men carrying sticks targeted the protesters as well. Police were also seen sitting in riot shielded vehicles firing on the demonstrators.
Protesters set fire to many vehicles, including a motorcycle. After nearly two hours, the police were able to get the situation under control.

Woman stabs boyfriend for ‘looking at other women’
According to FOX news, a Florida woman is in jail after she allegedly used rabies needles to stab her boyfriend because he was apparently looking at other women.
Sandra Jimenez, 44, was charged with aggravated battery in connection with a Saturday incident at a home shared with her boyfriend, according to a Miami-Dade Police Department arrest affidavit seen by FOX 35 Orlando.
Officers responded to a hospital following a report of a man who was stabbed in the eye with a needle. The victim told police that Jimenez used their dogs’ rabies needles to pierce his right eyelid during an argument about him “looking at other women,” the affidavit read.
Jimenez allegedly jumped on her boyfriend of eight years while he was lying on the couch and stabbed him with the needles before leaving their home when she “realized what she had done.”
The victim called 911 and was rushed to a hospital, where he spoke with officers about the attack.
Police later found Jimenez sleeping in her car outside the home and arrested her, the affidavit said. Jimenez claimed that her boyfriend’s injuries were “self-inflicted” when she was questioned by police about the alleged attack.
She is in custody at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $7,500 bond, according to arrest records.
