Dhaka: Hundreds of workers of a readymade garment factory blocked a road in the capital city’s Hatirpool area on Sunday afternoon. The protesters also engaged in clashes with policemen, demanding their wage for August in full, festival bonus and other dues. As the workers took to the Hatirpool road halting the traffic movement, sporadic clashes broke out as policemen tried to disperse the agitated workers. “Although we were told earlier that the authorities would pay us by 5pm, they failed to do so,” said Nazma Ahkter, a worker of TS Fashions. She said when they asked the authorities, they were told that the money, which was drawn from a bank, had been snatched away by a gang of muggers in the capital’s Paribagh. “As the news of the money being snatched was spread among the workers, we came down to the road,” she said. Kalabagan police station officer-in-charge Enamul Haq said they resorted to charging batons to free the roads. A gang of muggers allegedly took Tk3m from Mozammel Haque, the owner of TS Fashions, soon after he drew the amount from a branch of a commercial scheduled bank in the capital’s Paribagh area.

Shahbagh police arrested Mozammel’s driver Azizul Huq in this connection.
