Jhenaidah: At least 10 people were injured in a turf war between two factions of ruling Awami League in Shailkupa Upazila’s Bhatoi village on Tuesday, reports the UNB.

Police said AL’s Dudhswar Union unit General Secretary TA Raju and local Jubo League leader Mushfiqur Rahman Ujjal had been at loggerheads over dominance in the area.

Ujjal’s supporters beat up Raju’s follower Asad on Monday night leading to the morning’s violent clashes, said Tarek Al Mehedi, additional superintendent of Jhenaidah police.

Police rushed to the spot and took the situation under control. 

Five people have been arrested over the clash.
