Miscreants hurled a petrol bomb at the house of Jatiya Party- nominated candidate for Rajshahi-5 (Puthia-Durgapur) constituency Professor Abul Hossain on Wednesday night.

The house of JaPa candidate and ex-MP Abul Hossain came under attack in Sahabajpur village of Puthia upazila around 11pm. However, no casualties were reported.

Puthia Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Saidur Rahman said: “Two youths coming on a monocycle threw a crude bomb at the house and fled. The bomb fell on the gate of the house and caught fire.”

“The inmates of the house came and extinguished the fire,” he added.

Later, police visited the spot and collected evidence from there. An investigation has been launched to identify those involved in the incident.
