Recent blasts in Dhaka

On August 31, two police officials sustained injuries after an improvised bomb exploded in front of a police box in Dhaka's Science Lab intersection.

The blast took place when LGRD Minister Tazul Islam’s vehicle was passing through the area.

On July 24, police defused two bomb-like objects at Paltan intersection and Khamarbari’s Bangabandhu Chattar in Dhaka.
