There was no attack on the official residence of Barishal Sadar Upazila UNO Wednesday and posters and banners were being removed as part of routine activity of the city corporation staff, according to Barisal district and metropolitan units of Awami League (AL).
More than 60 Awami League leaders and activists and city corporation staff were shot as the law enforcers opened fire under the direction of the Upazila nirbahi officer (UNO) on Wednesday.
However, the situation did not require shooting, the AL units said Thursday.
The AL leaders said this to the media at Barishal City Corporation Mayor Serniabat Sadiq Abdullah's residence in the city while demanding the removal of Barishal Sadar UNO Munibur Rahman and the release of arrested AL activists.
However, the mayor was not present at that time.
General Secretary of Barishal district unit AL Talukdar Md Younus said legal actions would be taken over the incident on behalf of the party.
