Charge d affaires of Bangladesh Embassy to Libya Muhammad Mozammel Haque escaped narrowly being hit by a bullet at the Embassy while observing the second day programme of 'Amor Ekushey' on the embassy premises on Friday evening.
Three bullets pierced the embassy wall, one was almost hitting him but missed for inches, a diplomat told UNB.
The incident happened during a fierce fight between two rival groups, and a few mistargeted bullets landed on the embassy premises.
"Actually, it was not any targeted hitting, and the bullet was uncharged and mishit. It actually fell on my feet. The Charge de affaires was present there," another official told UNB.
"We all are safe ... anybody of our guests also could have been injured had it hit anyone's head," he added.
