Ten people have been injured at a Hindu religious gathering in northern Bangladesh as three crude bombs went off at Jatra pandal on the premises of Kantaji Temple in Kaharol upazila of Dinajpur.
According to the Daily Star, a series of blasts took place in the afternoon when the people were watching a jatra show arranged on the occasion of Rash Mela, leaving 10 people injured, police and witnesses said.
Six of the injured were immediately rushed to Dinajpur Medical College and Hospital. Police arrested three people soon after the blasts for their alleged involvement with the incident.
The bombs might have been planted in the ground as most of the injured persons suffered splinter injuries in the lower part of the bodies.
