For the past few weeks, labor protests have been going on in the garment factories of Gazipur, Savar, Ashulia and Dhaka to demand an increase in wages. In this, the government announced to increase the minimum wage from 8 thousand taka to 12.5 thousand taka, but some sections of the workers continued their agitation demanding that the wage be increased from 23 to 25 thousand taka.
As part of this, workers of some factories in Gazipur protested last Wednesday and clashed with the police. Jalal, the supervisor of Islam Garments, was shot while going to the office in that clash.
Inspector Bachchu said that his body has been kept in the hospital morgue.
