street vendors

One might get the impression that the colourful umbrellas are of a fairground. But in reality, these are business accessories set up by street vendors who have taken over this portion of an important thoroughfare in the capital's Jatrabari area. They, with political blessings, have been doing business encroaching on this road after the Mayor Hanif Flyover was built overhead. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Amran Hossain

The youth wing of BNP brought out a procession from Jimkhana ground, protesting an arrest warrant against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia in two corruption cases. Around 10 people were reported to have been injured during police action that foiled the protest. The law enforcers said the demonstrators did not take prior permission for their programme on the road. Photo: Sanad Saha
