When the procession reached near Chashara Golchattar police obstructed them and charged baton to disperse them, triggering a clash. Ten people were injured in the clash.

Shah Zaman, officer-in-charge of Model Police Station, said the protesters tried to create chaos by blasting crude bombs and so police took action to bring the situation under control.

The half-day nationwide hartal enforced by Left Democratic Alliance (LDA) to protest the soaring prices of edible oil, other essential commodities and utility services ended at 12 pm.

On March 11, the LDA called the half-day hartal.
