At least 20 left leaders and activists were injured on Thursday as police foiled an attempt of Left Democratic Alliance to lay siege to the Election Commission with a view to holding a free and fair national election, reports Kathmandu Tribune.

Leaders and activists of the left parties brought out a procession from in front of the National Press Club around 12:00 p.m. to step up their demands, including next general election under a caretaker government, with a view to holding a free and fair national election.

The police obstructed the march when it reached Karwan Bazar around 12:30 p.m.

Among the injured are Chhatra Union President GM Zilani Shuvo and Revolutionary Workers Party of Bangladesh general secretary Saiful Haque, said Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) leader Ruhin Hossain Prince.
