Hundreds of ready-made garment workers started demonstration for the second day after blocking Airport-Abdullahpur Road demanding salary and allowances as per the new wage structure.
The demonstration led vehicular movement to a halt.
The agitators took to the streets after 10am Monday (Jan 7).
In Dakshinkhan, a group of agitating workers engaged in a chase and a counter chase with police, at early hours of the morning.
Efforts are underway to return normalcy upon talks with both the workers and factory owners, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner (Traffic North) Prabir Kumar Roy.
The agitating workers blocked several points in Jasimuddin, Azampur and Abdullahpur areas with the same demand on Sunday (Jan 6) too.
