After Lenin, Periyar, Ambedkar, Mookerjee, now Gandhi's statue vandalized in Kerela

According to the reports, while a statue of Mahatma Gandhi was targeted in Kerala's Kannur district, a bust of Baba Ambedkar was damaged at Tiruvottiyur in Tamil Nadu's Chennai. The Taliparamba Police detained a man in connection with the incident.

The glasses and the garland of the statue were broken by an unidentified person.


The Uttar Pradesh police has registered a case over the desecration of Hanuman's statue in Kharua village on Wednesday.

A day earlier, PM Modi had condemned such acts of vandalism and spoken to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh over the issue. "He is mentally unstable and we are ruling out any political relation", ANI quoted a police officer as saying. He allegedly hurled a stone at the statue before leaving the scene. Meanwhile, some unknown people threw paint on the Ambedkar's statue located in Chennai.


Two statues of Communist icon Lenin had been brought down in Tripura on Monday, two days after the BJP wrested the Left bastion. The police are now on the lookout for the miscreants.

Kochi/Chennai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's strong condemnation over incidents of vandalism of statues in various parts of the country seems to have no deterring effect on miscreants.


"Incidents of toppling of statues have been reported from certain parts of the country". According to reports, the hooligans, who are yet to be identified, broke the spectacles on Gandhi's statue before getting away in Thaliperambu area of the city.
