AGARTALA: A three-day film festival of the Bangladesh government, scheduled to be held in Tripura’s Agartala from October 21, has been postponed due to the alleged communal tensions in the neighbouring country.
According to senior officials, the decision was taken due to “unavoidable circumstances”.

Many organisations, intellectuals, political parties and NGOs in Assam and Tripura have condemned the recent attacks on people belonging to the Hindu community in Bangladesh, besides organising protest rallies against the communal violence in the neighbouring country.
