Workers of a garments factory blockade a road in city's Rampura area for over an hour on Thursday demanding their unpaid salaries.
Traffic police inspector Moshiur Rahman said the workers of 'Air fashion' took position on the road in front of Abul Hotel around 10am.
A gridlock has been created on Shaheed Muktijoddha Faruk Iqbal and Taslim road, suspending vehicular movement on the road for an hour.
bdnews24.com adds: Around 200 workers occupied the road, said Moshiur Rahman at about 11:15am adding, "We are trying to persuade the workers step aside."
According to a protester, workers at the factory are owed three months' wages which have not been cleared despite several assurances from the owners.
