Chitta Ranjan, a resident of the Batra village, had leased 54 and half decimals of land and built a temple of the Hindu god Shiva over 20 years back and had since been performing religious activities

A Hindu temple and the establisher’s family home have been vandalized in a clash between two groups over a land dispute in the Nagarpur upazila in the Tangail district.

The incident took place in the upazila’s Kokadair area on Friday.

According to local sources, Chitta Ranjan, a resident of the Batra village, had leased 54 and half decimals of land and built a temple of the Hindu god Shiva over 20 years back and had since been performing religious activities.

A group of eight-nine miscreants led by Parimal Chandra Roy of the same village, tried to forcefully seize the land where temple was built by vandalizing Ranjan’s home and attacking his family members.

Nagarpur police station Officer-in-Charge Alam Chand said upon receiving information police visited the spot by which time the miscreants had managed to escape. 

A written complaint has been filed with the police station and legal action will be taken following a proper investigation, he added.

According to Chitta Ranjan, he had acquired the land over 20 years ago and performed his religious activities ever since. 

There was a previous enmity that existed between Parimal and him over this land; Parimal had threatened him and attempted to forcefully seize the land several times before, he added.
