Gazipur: Police arrested at least 18 leaders and activists of BNP for ‘sabotage plan’ from different places of Gazipur during a drive on Wednesday night.

Of the arrestees, four leaders and activists were arrested from Kapasia, 10 from Joydebpur, one from Sripur, two from Kaliakoir and one from Tongi areas.
The fifth day of the 120-hour nationwide hartal, enforced by the BNP-led alliance as part of its movement for what it says resorting democracy and people’s voting right and protesting the government’s ‘repressive acts’ and growing incidents of extrajudicial killing, is passing off peacefully alongside the blockade.
