A temple of the Hindu minority was attacked in Patgram upazila, Lalmonirhat, allegedly by the Jamaat-e-Islami after three Shibir man died in the area.

Six idols of Parapukur Temple were desecrated in Shafinagar area in the early hours of Monday, caretaker Harendra Nath Roy said.

“Over 100 Jamaat-Shibir men, armed with sharp weapons, broke in and desecrated the idols,” he alleged. “We, the Hindus, could not come out in fear.”

The temple committee’s President Sunil Chandra Sen said many Hindus were fleeing the area in fear of Jamaat attack during the night.

Patgram police Officer-in-Charge Sohrab Hossain said he was informed of the matter and necessary steps will be taken after investigation.

On Sunday, the Islami Chhatra Shibir activists died during clashes with law enforcers. Later, as revenge, they beat dead a local Awami League activist.
