At that time, the police came to the scene and charged the angry activists with batons to control the situation. A three-member investigation committee headed by Additional Superintendent of Police (Administration and Finance) SM Tarek Rahman was formed in this incident.  Moharram Ali was transferred to Chattogram Range before the investigation report was submitted.
