During the Hortal hour BNP leaders and activists faced obstruction by the law enforcers in enforcing the day-long shutdown in capital Dhaka and much across the country on Monday.
Vandalism and chase and counter-chase marked the countrywide dawn-to-dusk shutdown on Monday, leading to the arrest of at least 53 people. Over 50 people were reported injured in clashes across the country.
