40 hurt in clash between police, evicted Dhalpur slum dwellers
3/19/2006
 

          At least 40 people were injured in a clash between police and a mob who Saturday staged demonstration against the eviction of slum dwellers from Dhalpur of city's Demra area Thursday, reports BDNEWS.
Dhaka City Corporation authorities and police demolished the slum violating court order.
Police also arrested four of the agitators. They are Abdul Hakim, 55, of East Goran, Imdadul Huq, 22, of Sabujbagh, Gofran Gazi, 38, of Shahjahanpur, and Moslem Talukder, 48, of Mir Hazirbagh.
Being homeless, at least 10,000 evicted people have been passing their days under the open sky since Thursday. Hundreds of women, children and elderly people were seen staying on the roads surrounding the evicted slum.
Awami League (AL) leaders Motia Chowdhury, Saber Hossain Chowdhury and Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya went to the spot Saturday to see the sufferings of the victims.
According to witnesses, while the AL leaders were visiting the victims, police went on action on the agitated people who brought out a procession in protest against the Dhaka City Corporation move.
Witnesses said the police action led to a clash between the law enforcers and the agitators leaving at least 40 people, including a police constable Amir Hossain, injured.
During the clash, police charged indiscriminate batons while the protestors retaliated them with pelting stones.
SI Mohammad Yunus of Demra thana told the BDNEWS that as the mob pelted stones at police, they charged batons and arrested the people.
When contacted, Mahbub Alam, Deputy Commissioner (DC-East), said, "To avert any untoward incident, four platoons of police were deployed there since the morning."
According to sources, despite the stay order by the court, the DCC, with the support of police evicted the Dhalpur Adarsha Bosti, known as Bangabandhu slum under Demra thana.
During the eviction drive, police aided by local cadres beat up the slum dwellers leaving at least 50 people injured Thursday.
