Picketers set on fire a truck and vandalised a temple in Jhenaidah amidst the BNP-led 18-Party Alliance-sponsored nationwide day-long shutdown.
The cement-laden Kustia-bound truck was blocked on the Jhenaidah-Kustia highway early in the morning, Shailakupar Police Station Officer in-Charge Abdul Bari said.
“They spread petrol on the truck and set it on fire.”
Police officials visited the site, he added.
Meanwhile, ‘miscreants’ vandalised a Shiva temple in Kaligan upazila’s Parkhalkula area late Monday night, Kaliganj Police Station Officer in-Charge Liakat Ali said.
“They broke in and smashed 21 Shiva statues," he said.
