‘Baul akhra’ vandalized in Kushtia’s Mirpur

Kushtia, June 08 - Miscreants allegedly vandalized the akhra (den) of a Baul ascetic in a remote area of Mirpur upazila in Kushtia on Friday night.

Though police inspected the area, no criminals involved with this are yet to be detained.

It was learned that Baul Nishan Ali and his paternal cousins beat a painter named Rohel Sheikh who allegedly had been delaying in repaying a loan to the cousins on June 6.

Locals and police suspected that Rohel and his cohorts vandalized the den at any time of Friday night. The den is located in the remote area on a canal bank of Ganges-Kobadak Irrigation Project.

The baul defended himself saying that the cousins’ problems are being shifted to him and he hasn’t been involved with this.

Md Abdul Khalek, assistant superintendent of police (ASP) of Mirpur circle, who inspected the spot, said that they were looking for the matter to identify who or whoever was involved with the incident.

Exemplary measures will be taken if the authenticity of the attack is found, he added.-UNB
