Police charge batons on Muslim devotees when they brought out a rally under the banner of \'Islamic Law Implementation Committee\' at Purana Paltan area in the capital on Friday.

Police arrested several persons for their alleged involvement in bringing out the procession.
Witnesses said the religious organisation, "Islami Qanun Bastyabayan Committee" brought out a procession at the north gate of Baitul Mukarram Mosque after Jumma prayer calling to ensure the rights of citizens, belonging to all the religions.
When police intercepted the procession, a chase and counter-chase took place which led to the arrest of several persons from the spot.
