At least 10 people were injured in a turf war between two factions of ruling Awami League (AL) at Bhatoi of Shailkupa Upazila in Jhenidah on Tuesday.

Police said AL's Dudhswar Union unit General Secretary TA Raju and local Jubo League leader Mushfiqur Rahman Ujjal had been at loggerheads over dominance in the area.
