Khulna Metropolitan Police detained at least 53 leaders and activists of Bangladesh Nationalist Party and Jamaat in drives in the city from midnight Friday through Saturday morning.
Khulna Metropolitan Police commissioner, Nibas Chandra Majhi, said they were arrested in accordance with preemptive measures ahead of BNP-led alliance’s three-day countrywide strike beginning Sunday 6:00am.
Amid their ongoing non-stop blockade, the alliance on Friday also called a 72-hour shutdown from 6:00am Sunday as part of its movement for what the alliance leaders said, ‘restoring democracy and people’s voting right.’
