The local administration of Bhola has imposed an indefinite ban on public gathering in the district.
The authorities made the decision on Monday (Oct 21), a day after clashes between protesters and police left four people dead, reports UNB.
Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Masud Alam Siddique said the move was aimed at maintaining law and order.
“It’ll remain effective until further notice,” he added.
Meanwhile, the district bus owners association stopped intra-district operation from 6am citing security reasons, its Organising Secretary Shafiqul Islam said.
Maulana Ataur Rahman, secretary of Islami Andolan Bangladesh’s Bhola unit, said they plan to hold a pre-announced public gathering later in the day under the banner of Sarbadoliya Muslim Oikya Parishad.
Members of law enforcement and Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) have been deployed in the district to prevent any untoward incident.
