Dhaka: On Friday, an ISKCON temple was attacked by a group of about 200 people in the Noakhali district of Bangladesh. The ISKCON community also informed that one of its members was also killed in the incident.

ISKCON shared a tweet in which it said, "It is with great grief that we share the news of an ISKCON member, Partha Das, who was brutally killed yesterday by a mob of over 200 people. His body was found in a pond next to the temple. We call on the Govt of Bangladesh for immediate action in this regard."

The community further tweeted, "ISKCON temple & devotees were violently attacked today by a mob in Noakhali, Bangladesh. Temple suffered significant damage & the condition of a devotee remains critical. We call on the Govt of Bangladesh to ensure the safety of all Hindus & bring the perpetrators to justice."

This development came right after the Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina had announced that the culprits who were previously involved in the vandalisation of Hindu temples on Thursday during the Durga Puja celebrations would be "hunted down and punished".

The riot that took place on Thursday had killed 3 and had injured many others.

After the incident on Thursday, the Ministry of External Affairs has assured the public that the situation was under control.
