Miscreants attacked an ancient Hindu temple at Ashrafdi village in Bangladesh’s Narayanganj district, a top official said on Saturday.

A gang of 30-35 men stormed the Sonargaon temple on Friday and broke six idols, said Md. Yunus Ali, the local police chief.

He said the incident took place while the devotees were holding a religious function at the Sree Sree Rakshakali Temple.

The miscreants also attacked four houses, injuring at least five people.

The gang attack followed an altercation between a devotee and three youths of the village.
