AC Land among 20 hurt in clash with Sunamganj villagers

At least 20 people including Assistant Commissioner (Land) of Sunamganj Sadar Arif Adnan and some members of  law enforcement agencies were injured in a clash with villagers in Adarbazar area of Sadar upazila in Sunamganj district on Thursday.

Police said the district administration started the construction of some new houses on a land as part of a government project on the occasion of 'Mujib Year’.

At one stage, a group of villagers attacked AC Land Arif Adnan and members of police and Ansar with weapons, leaving them injured.

Later, Arif told UNB that some villagers have been opposing  construction of houses for a long time  even though the land belonged to the government.

He said everyone involved in the attack would be brought under justice.

Five people have been arrested over the incident so far.

"Police fired blank shots to disperse the villagers. The  situation is currently under control. Additional police have been deployed," added the AC Land.
