Villagers formed a human chain demanding the arrest of livestock thieves in Nageshwari upazila of Kurigram on Friday.
The human chain on Matherganj Bazar Road under the upazila lasted an hour in the morning.
Villagers of Char Krishnapur organized the unusual human chain to draw the attention of the authorities to rampant thieves in the area targeting farmers' cows and buffaloes.
The farmers at the human chain said they were forced to mobilise such a programme after failing to get justice.
Rather they were subjected to attacks by the thieves when they appealed seeking justice.
On behalf of the villagers, farmers Anwar Hossain, Abdul Khalek, Habibur Rahman spoke at the programme.
