The Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Anwara Police Station was injured at Anwara in Chattogram during a clash between police and supporters of 36-hr blockade enforced by BNP and other like-minded political parties.

Sohel Ahmed, the Anwara police station OC, suffered serious injury in the right eye during the clash. 

Anwara Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer Dr Mohammad Mamunur Rashid said the OC of Anwara Police Station was brought to the hospital in critical condition. 

“He was sent to an ophthalmologist in the city after initial treatment,” said Mamunur Rashid. 

Mohammad Mohiuddin, officer-in-charge (investigation) of Anwara Police Station, said some people under the banner of BNP, Jubo Dal and Chhatra Dal blocked the road in front of Shashi Community Center and vandalized some vehicles.

At that time, they attacked a police vehicle with sticks and brickbats, leaving Sohel Ahmed injured in the incident.

Police fired eight rounds of bullet in self-defense, said OC (investigation) Mohiuddin. One person has been detained in this connection.

Meanwhile, additional law enforcement personnel have been deployed in the area to maintain control of  the situation.
