Update : 07 Nov 2016, 04:09 PM
The fresh detentions were made during drives in Nasirnagar Sadar union and adjacent areas on Sunday night after scrutinising the video clips that were captured during the attacks on October 30. Confirming the matter to the Dhaka Tribune, Nasirnagar OC Abu Jafar said: "The detainees will be produced before local court with remand pleas." A total of 74 people have been arrested in connection to the attacks on the Hindu community in the upazila. A mob vandalised at least 10 temples and ransacked hundreds of houses belonging to the Hindus on Oct 30 over an alleged defamatory Facebook post by a Hindu youth. More than 100 people were injured in the attack which the victims blamed on local influential people. The ruling Awami League suspended three of its Nasirnagar unit leaders for their involvement.
