At least eight idols of Hindu gods and goddesses were vandalised by unidentified miscreants in Bangladesh, a media report said Friday.
A group of people broke into the community puja pandal at a village in Bangladesh’s Natore district early Friday and damaged the newly-carved idols of goddesses Durga, and Lakshmi, and gods Ganesh and Kartik, reported The Daily Star citing Aslam Hossin, a police official.
Police said the general secretary of puja committee, Narayan Chandra Karmaker, came to the temple at around 4 a.m. and discovered that the idols were badly disfigured. He then raised an alarm.
