A man was killed on Friday when miscreants took out a rally and carried out an attack on an area in Noakhali's Begumganj upazila.

The deceased was identified as Jatan Kumar Saha, 42, said Noakhali Additional Superintendent of Police (Circle Begumganj) Md Shah Imran as quoted in media reports.

A total of 17 people, including Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Begumganj police station Kamruzzaman Sikder, were injured in the attack, he added.

According to the police, the mob marched near College Road and DB Road in Begumganj on Friday afternoon and vandalized the area.

On Wednesday, tension erupted among locals in Comilla after news broke on social media about the alleged desecration of the Holy Quran at a Durga Puja venue on the banks of Nanuar Dighi.

At one point, the situation started to get out of control and trouble started spreading to a number of puja venues in the adjacent areas. The local administration and police had come under attack while trying to restore order, reports our correspondent.

Later in the afternoon, RAB and BGB troopers were deployed to bring the situation under control.
