Update : 15 Feb 2014, 09:31 PM

A group of people, allegedly supporters of ruling Awami League, torched some 13 houses of their political rivals at the Swalpo Paschimpara village in Gouripur upazila in Mymensingh last night.

Police said the attack could be a retaliation to another attack on local Awami League supporter Shahed Ali, who was injured by unknown miscreants on Friday night.

Shahed had a longstanding dispute with one Mustakim Member, also an Awami League supporter, over establishing supremacy in the area. Police said Shahed’s supporters blamed Mustakim and his men for the attack, said police.

Following the attack on Shahed, his sons Swapon and Nayan, along with their men, attacked and ransacked the houses of Mustakim Member and his relatives around 9pm yesterday. At one stage, they set the 13 houses on fire, said Hamidur Rahman, OC of Gouripur police station.
