A woman has been detained for attacking a journalist in Munshiganj.
The detainee Roksana Akter, 47, is the owner of the building where Daily Janakantha staff correspondent Mir Nasir Uddin Ujjal lives in a rented flat.
Ujjal is also the former president of Munshiganj press club.
He said he was severely injured after being attacked by 10 to 12 assailants in his rented Manikpur flat on Sunday.
His neighbours rescued him and took him to the Munshiganj General Hospital where he is currently being treated.
The reason behind the attack is yet unclear.
Sadar police's Officer-in-Charge Yunus Ali said Ujjal's family filed a case against seven persons, naming landlady Roksana as the prime accused.
Roksana was detained on Monday morning from her house.
OC Yunus said they were trying to nab other accused.
