The police and by-standers said that there had been a dispute between the President of Kalapaharia union Chhatra League Saddam Hossain's group and former union parishad member of 5 no ward Abdul Haque's group of followers over dominance in the area.
On Wednesday afternoon, Rasel, a follower of the group led by union Chhatra League president Saddam Hossain, and his associates set up a place for gambling in the Izarkandi area.
Ayub Nabi, an 8th-grade student and a follower of the group led by UP member Abdul Haque, stopped Rasel and his followers from doing so.
