Following the widespread protest in Muslim-dominated places in the two districts, a team of police rushed to the protesting sites and fired tear gas and mock bombs to disperse the mob of protesters.

At least 11 workers of Noorul Hassan were picked up by Porompat police, while the NPP candidate was at the oath-taking ceremony on Monday, sources said.

Demanding unconditional release of the said workers, locals and supporters of the NPP candidate stormed Porompat police station. Twenty others were apprehended during the clash between the police and the mob.
