Another case has been filed over the desecration of a temple and vandalism of idols in Comilla.

So far, nine cases have been filed over such incidents in Comilla Sadar, Daudkandi and Debidwar upazilas.

The desecration of the Holy Quran at a puja venue in the district town’s Nanuardighi neiigbouhood triggered nationwide violence with a large number of Hindu homes burned and temples vandalised.

Unidentified men vandalised the idols in the under-construction Biharmandal Kali Mandal on the night of Dashami, the last day of Durga Puja, said Debidar Police OC Arifur Rahman.

“We went to inspect the scene after it was reported the next morning,” he said.

According to OC Rahman, one Narayan Pal filed the case against unidentified men and police are hunting the perpetrators. 

On Wednesday, police identified the man who was responsible for keeping the Quran at the puja venue, an incident that triggered attacks on the Hindu community in various parts of the country.

Iqbal Hossain was identified from a video footage of security cameras installed around the Durga Puja pavilion.

In the footage, a man is seen taking the Quran from a local mosque and walking to the puja pavilion at Nanuardighi on October 13. He was later seen walking away with the club of Hindu God Hanuman.
