After filing of two separate cases, police arrested Raju Mia, who was set to jail after recording his declaration of guilt. This incident added fuel to the fire. Habib Sarowar and Alam Sheikh became more hostile and again damaged 10 kali idols in the Tukergaon village kali temple of South Borodol union.
