Ruling party Awami Leagu activists, leaders and thugs attacked on the minority Hindu people and destroyed their properties. They also looted and vandalized whatever they found there.
National Human Rights Commission report found that, Awami people wanted to extort the Hindu minorities, but they refused to pay any money. Therefore, Awami league people spread a rumor that the Hindus defamed Islam, angered local people and did these atrocities.
Those people are closest activists to Awami leader and state minister Shamsul Hoque Tuku.
