When the procession reached the Paltan crossing parading from Baitul Mukarram Mosque premises, police charged batons and dispersed the protesters. At that time, the protesters chanted slogans in favour of Hefazat-e-Islam leader Mamunul Huq's anti-sculpture stand.

Police said the law enforcers adopted a strict position for the safety and security of people.

However, police could not identify the protesters ho brought out the procession.

DMP Motijheel Division Additional Deputy Commissioner Enamul Huque said that the protesters tried to bring out a procession without obtaining permission from the police.

"We dispersed them and deployed additional forces in the area to avoid any unpleasant situation," he said.

No arrests were made in this connection and the situation was eventually brought under control, he added.
