"We tried to go to the office of the energy ministry to raise our concern over the gas price rise but police prevented and scuffled with us," said Ruhin Hossain, secretary of Bangladesh Communist Party which belongs to the LDA.
Police said officers tried to prevent protesters from breaking through a barricade and that it was unaware of anyone being injured.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said last week the price increases were necessary to sustain economic growth.
