Idol at Thakurgaon Kali temple vandalised
An idol of Hindu goddess Kali was vandalised by unidentified criminals at a temple in Thakurgaon's Pirganj upazila on Sunday night.
Jitendra Nath, president of the Kali Mandir management committee, said some devotees had gone to the temple to pray at night and found the idol damaged.
The Ilua Pukur Shamshan Ghat Kali Mandir is located in Syedpur union.
Jitendra alleged that dispute over the cremation ground's land led to the vandalism.
Syedpur union's Chairman Ekramul Haq said there are ownership disputes among locals over the cremation ground and the administration is aware of the issue.
Upazila Nirbahi Officer Rejaul Karim said the local administration held meetings with both sides to prevent any untoward incident.
Pirganj Police Station's Officer-in-Charge Pradeep Kumar said a case had been filed over the vandalism.
