The death toll of Hefazat-e-Islam activists in Brahmanbaria has reached six following the death of another injured who were injured on Saturday's clash.
The deceased, Nurul Amin, 22, passed away today at Brahmanbaria General Hospital where he was admitted after sustaining injuries in Saturday's clash between Hefazat activists and the police and BGB members.
The duty doctor of the hospital confirmed the matter to The Business Standard.
Earlier, five people were killed and dozens injured as Hefazat-e-Islam activists clashed with police and BGB members at Nandanpur of Brahmanbaria Sadar upazila on Saturday.
According to sources, clashes erupted around 6pm on Saturday when the Hefazat men assembled at Nandanpur Bazar to hold a rally, protesting against the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bangladesh and Friday's police action on Hefazat activists in Chattogram and Dhaka.
They carried out an attack on police and BGB members, when the law enforcers tried to obstruct them.
At one stage, police and BGB members opened fire to disperse them. Some protesters sustained bullet-injuries during the clash.
