A youth was held over vandalising an idol at a Mirpur temple in Dhaka yesterday.
Rashidul Hasan, 26, desecrated an idol of goddess Kali at Mirpur Central Mandir, said Otindra Sarker, an assistant priest of the temple.
Otindra said the youth entered the temple after taking permission from him.
After a while, the priest heard a loud noise, went inside the temple and found the idol broken.
With the help of security guards, he handed the youth over to police.
