A Hindu religious congregation at an ISKON temple in Bangladesh was attacked by unidentified gunmen who hurled bombs and fired gunshots at the worshippers, injuring two people in the second such incident in the same area in less than a week. Three improvised bombs were thrown as dozens rallied at the temple at village at Kaharol sub-district last night and then fired gunshots leaving the two people wounded. "The priests and devotees first thought some people were celebrating their victory in a local school committee election exploding firecrackers but the miscreants then fired six gunshots when the two were wounded," a police officer told PTI over phone.
