5 idols vandalised in Sirajdikhan

sirmurtiUnidentified miscreants vandalised five idols of Hindu goddesses and gods at a temple in Sirajdikhan upazila of Munshiganj in the wee hours of Sunday.

The criminals vandalised three statues of Durga and one statue of Ganesha and Kartik each at Durga Temple sometime after 11:00pm Saturday, reports our Munshiganj correspondent quoting Keshab Thakur, president of the temple.

The same temple had come under attack before the last year’s Durga Puja, the biggest religious festival of the Hindus, he added.

The criminals are yet to be identified, he added.

The statues were being painted ahead of the Durga Puja this year, the president added.

The criminals might have used long sticks to damage the statues as the temple is surrounded by iron grill, said Abul Bashar, officer-in-charge of Sirajdikhan Police Station.
