10 hurt in Sylhet JaPa factional clash

8At least 10 people were injured in a clash between two groups of Jatiya Party (JaPa) in Bishwanath upazila on Friday afternoon over the upazila unit committee.
Party sources said the new district JaPa convening committee on Wednesday formed fresh committee of its Bishwanath upazila unit dissolving the previous one.
However, the supporters of JaPa MP from Sylhet-2 constituency Md Yahya Chowdhury opposed the new committee.
They held a broom procession and a rally on Thursday rejecting the decision of the district convening committee.
The both groups — backing and opposing the new committee — locked in a clash in Basia Bridge area of the upazila headquarters around 3pm on Friday.
A chase and counter-chase took place during the melee that left at least 10 people injured from the both sides.
On information, police rushed in and brought the situation under control
