Pabna Correspondent: Police has arrested 11 people, including Land Minister Shamsur Rahman Sherif’s son Sirhan Sharif Tamal, in a case filed for vandalism.

Police arrested them from different places of Ishwardi upazila on Thursday midnight.

According to sources, Land Minister Shamsur Rahman and his son-in-law Ishwardi municipality Mayor Abul Kalam Azad had long been at loggerheads over establishing supremacy in the area.

About 10-15 supporters of the minister swooped on a number of business establishments at Ishwardi upazila headquarters on Thursday and vandalised those, including a shop owned by Azad.

They also stormed the house of Zubaiyer Biswas, president of upazila unit Chhatra League, and ransacked it.

Later, Atiar Biswas, father of Zubaiyer, filed a case with Ishwardi Police Station on Thursday.
