At least two activists of Hefazat-e-Islam were reportedly injured when they locked into a clash with police and BGB in Signboard area in the capital's Jatrabari.
They have blocked Dhaka-Chattogram highway since Sunday morning during a daylong hartal today.
"The hartal supporters kept the highway blocked since morning. We requested them to move away from there. Instead of freeing the road, they started hurling brick chips at law enforcers," Upazila Nirbahi Officer Nahida Batik told The Business Standard.
BGB fired rubber bullets in retaliation, she added.
Police also fired tear gas shells to disperse them. Two Hefazat men were injured in the clash.
Tensed situation is prevailing there currently as ruling Awami League's front wings- Jubo League and Chhatra League- have taken position in the area too.
Hefazat men became violent in some parts of the country from the beginning of the hartal today. They hurled stones at Chattogram-bound train, forcing authorities to suspend rail communication on Dhaka-Chattogram and Dhaka-Sylhet routes.
They also set fire on two buses in Rajshashi and on an electric pole in Brahmanbaria, when five Hefazat men were killed on Saturday during a clash with police.
In Dhaka, they have taken position in different spots with bamboo sticks. They chased away a group of Awami League in Paltan area.
