A bus was torched in the Mirpur area of Dhaka city on Sunday evening, ahead of the countrywide daylong hartal called by Jamaat for Monday.
Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami is set to enforce the nationwide dawn-to-dusk hartal protesting for what it said ‘planned killing’ of its leader Muhammad Kamaruzzaman.Police said pro-hartal elements set the bus of ‘New Vision Paribahan’ afire near Ward-8 community centre at Zoo Road around 8:50 pm.
However, local people doused the flame and no injury was reported in the incident.
Pro-hartal picketers were reported active also in the rest of the country on late Sunday afternoon. Torching of vehicles was reported from some districts including Bogra.
