According to the UNB report, the committee headed by Additional District Magistrate (ADM) MD Siddiq Ali submitted the report to Deputy Commissioner (DC) Qamrul Ahsan Talukdar on May 7, 20 days after the incident.

DC Qamrul told the media on Sunday that the committee interviewed more than 100 people who alleged that more than 100 people, including local public representatives, were involved in the mass thrashing.

The DC said, “Since the matter is sub-judice, we cannot say anything further on the matter. However, some issues have come to light in the report.”

In response to a question, he said that in the statements of the interviewees, no involvement of the two teenage brothers was found in setting the temple on fire.

“It could not be identified who set the temple on fire. No statement of witnesses was found regarding the involvement of the two brothers or any worker in the fire incident,” the DC said.
