Bangladesh-Organised Film Festival postponed in Tripura

A Bangladesh-organised film festival in Tripura has been postponed after communal violence in the neighboring country during the Durga Puja festivities last week.

Jubayed Hassan, the Assistant High Commissioner of Bangladesh in Agartala, said that the festival has been postponed “due to current tensed situation”.

“Keeping in mind the current tensed situation caused due to attack on the Hindu community in Bangladesh and the consecutive discontentment among people in Tripura over that, the Bangladesh government has decided to delay the festival untill things get better,” Mr Hassan said.
