Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader said the killing of five workers in police firing in Chittagong in the month of Ramadan is not acceptable.
In a statement on Sunday, he demanded the formation of a judicial probe committee to look into the incident and ensure proper legal action against the real offenders responsible for the clash and killing.
Referring to media reports, GM Quader said the workers were protesting against the payment of arrears and fixing of working hours considering the time for iftar, sehri and tarabi during Ramadan.
“It’s essential to find out why and under what circumstances the police had to open fire on the protesting workers. Such killings during the holy month of Ramadan cannot be accepted,” he said.
