At least one person has been killed and several others injured in the ongoing violent protests in Bangladesh against the Corona ban. Local police chief Mohammed Alimuzzaman told the DPA news agency that a rumor had spread that a person had been beaten up by officers monitoring compliance with the Corona virus lockdown after an outcry on Monday evening in the southwestern town of Saltha.

The demonstration then turned violent. Alimuzzaman said police opened fire to disperse protesters and also released tear gas shells. In this regard, he said: “The bullets were fired in self-defense”. Additional police have been deployed to the area as a precaution. Let us tell you that the lockdown of Kovid-19 was imposed on Bangladesh for 7 days in the capital Dhaka on Monday, when many people do not obey these orders.
