Justice AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury, a former Supreme Court judge who retired recently, has been attacked in London.
His daughter said in a Facebook post that she and her father landed at London's Heathrow airport on Wednesday night.
Before heading home, the two drove off to a Durga Puja pavilion in York Hall at Bethnal Green, she said.
As the two came out of the pavilion, a person came up to them and asked her father if he was indeed AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury.
When he did not reply, the youngman attacked him. Few others joined up and kicked and punched Shamsuddin, his daughter said in the FB post.
The attackers snatched his mobile phone as the former judge hit the ground.
The London Metropolitan Police confirmed to bdnews24.com that Choudhury had been attacked.
But it was not yet clear who was responsible for the attack and the motive behind it.
In 2012, unidentified Bengali youths had assaulted Choudhury near his home in East London.
