Dhaka: Four persons including a policeman were killed and seven were wounded on Thursday during blasts near Sholakia ground at Kishoreganj district, before Eid prayers began at Bangladesh’s largest congregation.

Police constable Jahurul Haque, 30, died in the blasts that occurred around 9 a.m., at Azimuddin School gate, a kilometre away from the prayer ground, bdnews24 reported.

The largest congregation of Eid prayer in Bangladesh was being held there on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr that marks the end of the Muslims' holy fasting month of Ramadan when the bombings occurred.

It was not known immediately who launched the bomb attack.

A police official told Xinhua news agency that security has been beefed up after the explosions.

"We're closely monitoring the situation," said the official.

The explosions came about a week after a terror attack on a restaurant in Dhaka's diplomatic enclave Gulsan in which 20 people including 18 foreigners were killed.
