At around quarter past 3 pm Monday evening, a group of 10-12 Jubo League activists under Tipu’s leadership attacked the Shaheed Minar at the Shaheediya Aliya Madrassa in Sherpur. News agency Manab Zamin reported that concerned members of the general public obstructed the activists while they were attacking the main pillar of the newly built Shaheed Minar and chased them.
At this time, the public successfully apprehended Tabibur Rahman Tipu, the Bogra City Joint Convener of Jubo League and handed him over to the police. Commenting on the matter, ex-mayor of Sherpur municipality and Bogra district BNP advisor Jaane Alam Khoka said that the nationwide strike had been peacefully implemented at Bogra.
