Miscreants on Sunday targeted the Indian mission in Bangladesh's port city of Chittagong during a four-day nationwide shutdown that began today.

There were conflicting reports over the incident, with police describing it as a blast first but later said it was just a cracker. Another reported a crude bomb blast outside the office of Assistant High Commission at Khulshi.

Mainul Islam Bhuiya, officer-in-charge of Khulshi Police Station, said that the cracker hit the boundary wall of the office around 6:30pm, Daily Star reported.

Nobody was injured in the incident. Police were trying to identify the attackers, the police official said.
