Unknown miscreants have vandalized the idols in the Kashipur Sarbajanin Durga Temple in Barisal’s Mehendiganj Upazila.

The incident was reported early on Sunday, Mehediganj Police OC Shafiqul Islam told Dhaka Tribune. 

He said that locals found the idols in the temples vandalized when they visited in the morning. 

Police said that the incident happened somewhere in the wee hours of the night as there were people in there until 2am. 

“There are no CCTV cameras in the temple and we have asked the temple authorities to install the camera as soon as possible,” said OC Shafiqul. 

The leaders of Mehendiganj Puja Udjapon Parishad strongly condemned the incident and demanded legal action against the miscreants.

Mehediganj UNO Nurunnabi visited the spot and gave orders to restore the temple to make it fit for worship. 

Barisal Range Police Deputy Inspector General said that so far 1,682 idols for the upcoming Durga Puja have been sculpted so far and orders have been given to install CCTV cameras at the Puja pavilions.
