Four people were injured in the attack during the election campaign in support of Nizam Uddin Hazari, the nominated candidate of Awami League of Feni-2 Sadar Constituency. The attack took place on Tuesday afternoon.
According to eyewitnesses, the local Awami League leaders and workers took out an election procession as part of the municipal Awami League program on Tuesday afternoon. The terrorists ambushed the procession when it passed through Paschim Ukil Para and came in front of Rampur Saudagar house. Four BCL leaders were injured in the attack.
Alal Uddin Alal, Member Secretary of Feni District BNP, said that in the afternoon, the leaders and workers of the ruling party started abusing the locals from a rally in Rampur. I heard that there was some problem when the locals of the area protested. It is absolutely absurd to lie about the leaders and activists of BNP or affiliated organizations here. This is not a political issue.
A supporter named Imran, who participated in the march, said, I was marching peacefully with the support of the boat. As the procession came from Patwari Bari area in front of Saudagar Bari, sudden cocktail explosions started. Many people were injured on the spot.
Injured Apu, who is undergoing treatment at the hospital, said that when we were moving forward with the procession, suddenly a loud noise was heard. Many people including me started running. I took refuge in a house to protect myself, and there was also an attack.
According to Feni General Hospital sources, two people came to the hospital for treatment after the attack. They are Kausar Ahmed Apu (17), son of Golap Nabi, a resident of the local ward, and Rabbi Hasan (18), son of Main Uddin of North Baria village of Fulgazi upazila. The other two received first aid.
Superintendent of Police of Feni Zakir Hasan said, I have heard about the incident. However, no one complained to the police in this regard. Two are under treatment in the hospital. Necessary action will be taken if complaints are received.
