A gang, allegedly backed by rival partymen, vandalised and looted the residence of Niamul Hakim Saju, former general secretary of district Sramik Dal on Wednesday night.
The incident took place as a sequel to internal feud in district BNP, party sources said.
Niamul Hakim Saju said that criminals backed by local BNP raided his residence at Sayadhangara and looted valuables after vandalising the house.
The gang threatened that no BNP politics except under the leadership of Iqbal Hasan Mahmood Tuku will be allowed. He said he was not present at the time of attack and his family members could not identify any of the attackers.
Mirza Mostafa Zaman, former president of district JCD, said Saju is a diehard leader of BNP and went to jail several times including for train burning case. It is painful that his residence was attacked by partymen, he said, demanding punishment of the culprits.
Earlier five top ranking leaders of BNP, including president of central Tanti Dal, were manhandled in Sirajganj due to internal feud.
Contacted, Azizur Rahman Dulal, organising secretary of district BNP, said he did not know anything about the incident.
