Miscreants vandalised a 46-year old Shaheed Minar in Kumarkhali upazila of Kushtia early today, just a day before the country is set to celebrate the International Mother Language day on the occasion of Ekushey February.

The miscreants vandalised the Shaheed Minar constructed on Jaduboyra High School premises in the upazila anytime after 12:00am today, reports our Kushtia correspondent quoting Khaliquzzaman, officer-in-charge (OC) of Kumarkhali Police Station.   
Police came to know about the vandalism when locals informed them, the OC added.
Shariful Islam, president of the school committee, suspected that the BNP and its key ally Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing, Islami Chhatra Shibir, might have committed the vandalism.
Nearly one month ago, unidentified miscreants vandalised another Shaheed Minar in the same upazila.
