Nirapad News : Strikers have hurled a petrol bomb into a bus in front of Gabtoli Bus Terminal in Dhaka during a shutdown called by Jamaat-e-Islami. They also exploded a number of handmade bombs around 10am on Thursday, Darussalam Police Station Officer in Charge Rafikul Islam said. The petrol bomb was flung into a route-8 bus parked in front of the terminal but failed to cause much loss, he said. Police also recovered three petrol bombs left on the other side of the street. Witnesses said some Islami Chhatra Shibir activists took out a sudden procession and hurled the bombs. Jamaat-e-Islami had called the general strike in protest against death sentence of its leader ATM Azharul Islam, according to a news agency.
