Workers of a readymade garment factory staged demonstrations here on Tuesday blocking Dhaka-Aricha highway near Savar Bazar bus stand demanding that unpaid wages be cleared.

The agitated workers said the owner of GK Garment did not pay their unpaid wages though they assured them several times to this end.

Around 100 workers blocked the highway in the morning, halting vehicular movement on one carriageway of the highway. On information, police rushed in and charged baton on the agitating workers, leaving at least 10 of them injured.

The workers said they would continue their agitation until the dues are cleared.

They would take steps after discussion with the factory authorities, said AFM Sayed, officer-in-charge of Savar police station.
