Several thousand Muslim devotees performed the Juma prayers at the regional Ijtema in the district town on Friday.
The three-day regional Ijtema started through the opening speech by Mufti Abdul Bareq, Imam of Kakrail Mosque in the capital, on Thursday.
Several thousand Muslim devotees have already thronged the Ijtema ground to offer special prayers seeking divine blessings.
A total of 2,000 policemen have been deployed around the Ijtema ground to ensure a tight security arrangement, said Salahuddin Sikder, additional superintendent of police.
The organisers said medical camps, bathrooms, toilets and tube wells were set up at the Ijtema venue.unb
