Fr. Piero Arolari was shot on his bicycle on his way to a parish in Northern Bangladesh. Witnesses attested that the three shooters approached the Priest from behind using a motorbike to approach him as he pedaled his bicycle before shooting at the priest. The assailants fled after the attack.

Fr Piero Arolari, 57, suffered bullet wounds to his head but he is out of danger, said Zillur Rahman, a doctor treating him at the hospital.

Tempers have been high in the region since the attack, as this is not the first attack, there have been couples of attacks in Bangladesh lately and the People no longer feel safe. Most of the subsequent attacks have been claimed by the Islamic extremist. But so far no one has claimed responsibility for the shooting of Fr. Piero Arolari
