Faridpur: At least 25 people were injured in a clash between two groups of locals from six villages of Faridpur’s Bhanga upazila on Friday.
The incident took place reportedly over a trivial matter at Chulna Bazar area around 7 pm.
Quoting locals, MM Siddikur Rahman, Chairman of Alog union, said there was an argument between some men of Gulpunodi and Naora villages over taking photographs.
At one point, people from six villages split into two groups over the issue, resulting in a clash that lasted nearly an hour and a half.
People from Gulpunodi, Naora, Chulna, Shuadi, Chandra, and Oporpurti villages engaged in the clash with locally made arms, he said.
The groups attacked each other and the injured are currently receiving treatment at different hospitals, he added.
