Protest sparks over alleged sacrilegious act in Jammu


Protests sparked today over an alleged sacrilegious act in this winter capital of the state.
“Activists of Bajrang Dal this evening staged a protest over alleged sacrilegious act in Channi Himmat area,’’ police here said.
They said that the protestors shouted slogans and demanded action against the culprits.
Police, however, said that a decomposed body of a bovine was found in an abandoned plot near Channi Himmat area, which triggered protest from the activists of Bajrang Dal.
The demonstrators also blocked the Sidhra-Kunjwani By-Pass road for a while, adding, “teams of police and administrative officials immediately rushed to the spot and pacified the protestors by assuring action against those who will be behind the conspiracy.’’
Police further said that a case has been registered and the samples have been sent to the laboratory to ascertain the facts, adding that at least five suspects have been rounded up for investigation.
The demonstrators later dispersed and the chocked traffic restored.
