Temples attacked in Pabna, Netrakona

Locals of Mymensinghorohi village under Shingherbangla union of Netrakona sadar told the Dhaka Tribune’s Hanif Ullah Akash that they had found the doors of the Kali temple opened yesterday morning.

Upon entering the temple premises, they found smashed bits and pieces of the idols and furniture. Locals found two of the idols – one of Kali and another of Shiva – about 600 feet away from the temple.

The overwhelming evidence of vandalism compelled the locals to call the police.

Sadar police OC Shahnur-e-Alam said that they had visited the site and collected evidence. “We have started an investigation and have found that the temple doors were not locked.”
