10-yr-old victim of political violence
A crude bomb hit a schoolboy while he was simply peering out of their fourth floor window at a procession going by on the street in the capital's Bangshal yesterday.
The ten-year-old Mohin Ali, a class IV student, was given treatment.
The incident happened in his residence around 1:15pm.
The bomb from the procession hit the window and exploded in Mohin's face, his uncle Selim told The Daily Star.
Bangshal police Officer-in-Charge Zamir Uddin, however, could not confirm which political party the procession belonged to.
“We have detained two people on the spot but are still investigating into who threw the cocktail,” he said.
Seeking anonymity, police sources said a group of 10 to 12 youths bearing flags and staffs were marching by the house, when they saw a police car approaching, they blasted several cocktails.
