At least six were killed and scores of vehicles and property burnt in violent attacks by the Jamaat-e-Islami supporters across Bangladesh. This came after the execution of war crimes convict Abdul Quader Mollah on Thursday night. Reports said they went on a rampage.

Meanwhile, the remains of Mollah, whose death sentence was carried out in fulfilment of the Supreme Court verdict, were taken to his ancestral home in Faridpur and buried.
