The clash occurred when protesters, agitated by an incident where a Quran was allegedly 'dishonoured' at a Hindu temple in Cumilla, led a march from Baitul Mukarram Mosque and were blocked by police, reports bdnews24.com.

The cases, filed in the early hours of Saturday at the respective police stations, identified 21 suspects and accused at least 4,000 other unnamed individuals, police said.

Monirul Islam, chief of the Ramna Police Station, said ten people were arrested from the scene on Friday and law enforcers say they are working to identify the others involved.

The case at Ramna station named 10 people and accused nearly 1,500 other unnamed individuals, he said.

“On Saturday, a court granted us two days to question 10 arrestees, including Hasan, Habibur Rahman and Razzak, in our custody,” Monirul added.
