Jagatsinghpur, Nov 21 (LocalWire) Unidentified miscreants allegedly vandalized a statue of Mahatma Gandhi at Kanakeswer High school of Debgram village under Balikuda police station here.
The statue, located on the campus of Kanakeswer High School of Debgram village, was vandalized on Tuesday after the classes were over, said police on Wednesday.
“This school has no boundary walls and has thus turned into a den of anti-socials, drug addicts and drunkards. They have damaged ears, nose and eyes and other parts of the Gandhi statue,” said a local villager.
School head master Ajaya Kumar Kundu has lodged an FIR with the Balikuda police. A case has been registered.
The statue was erected at the school premises in 2016.
Earlier, headmaster of this school complained about rise of anti-social activities because this school has been turned as den of miscreants.
