The motorcade of Jatiya Party candidate for Manikganj-2 and the vehicle of Patuakhali-3 BNP contestant's wife allegedly came under attack in Manikganj and Patuakhali districts on Saturday.

In Manikganj, leaders and activists of Jubo League allegedly attacked the motorcade of former MP and Jatiya Party runner from Manikganj-2 parliamentary seat SM Abdul Mannan in Kanthapara area of Harirampur upazila in the afternoon, leaving nine people injured.

Mannan claimed that the Jubo League men swooped on his motorcade equipped with sticks around 2:30pm as they reached Kanthapara for electioneering, according to UNB.

They vandalised his vehicle and several motorcycles, he said.

In Patuakhali, the vehicle carrying the family members of BNP candidate in Patuakhali-3 Golam Maula Rony, including his wife Runu Begum and sister, was attacked in Madina Masjid area of Golachipa upazila at afternoon.
