Miscreants disrupt Puja in Baksa

In yet another incident that can brew an orgy of group clash, unidentified miscreants vandalized idols of the goddess Kali in a few temples and puja pandals in Baksa district on Monday. The incident took place at Jwarkuchi in the district.
The local people in large number blocked the Indo-Bhutan international road for a few hours in protest against the incident.
Police and civil officials rushed to the area and appealed the people to maintain peace and harmony. 
Security measures have been tightened in the religious places at Jwarkuchi where the situation was stated to be under control but tension prevailed following the incident. 
Meanwhile, the All Minorities Bodo Territorial Council Area Students Union local unit president Nazrul Islam has condemned the incident and demanded that the culprits be nabbed immediately.
