This infuriated the situation and the guardian and associates of the Muslim boy with religiously motivated attacked the temple and desecrated Hindu deities with common object to destroy Murthies.

Bangladesh Minority Watch immediately communicated with Fazlul Karim –Officer in Charge of Mymensingh Sadar P.S. over his cell number -01713373430 who confirmed the unfortunate incident and he gave us to understand that a case has been registered on 07th June, 2014 as proper section of law, but he said no accused has yet been arrested because those accused are absconding.
