Miscreants have set a train on fire at Dhaka’s Kamalapur Railway Station, the nerve-centre of Bangladesh’s rail network, in the last leg of the two-day strike called by Jamaat-e-Islami.
Railways Minister Mazibul Hoque has blamed the Jamaat for the act of arson.
The attack on the train at Kamalapur came amidst large scale sabotage and arson on railway property by Jamaat-Shibir supporters in the last two days as the Islamists went on a violent spree ever since its leader Delwar Hossain Sayeede was ordered to walk the gallows Thursday.
Trains have been set on fire, rail tracks have been uprooted or even burnt down by using tar and fuel, signals have been vandalised in what is seen as a systematic effort by the Islamist party to disrupt railway services across the country.
