A temple was vandalised in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk after clashes broke out between two communities over a parking dispute on Sunday night (30 June), Press Trust of India has reported.
The incident is said to have happened after a man began assaulting a few intoxicated men over a parking dispute. The fight soon escalated and a mob vandalised a temple in the area at about 10 pm which triggered communal tensions.
A purported video of the incident released by Delhi MLA Kapil Mishra shows a mob vandalising a temple while shouting slogans like Allah O Akbar and Naara E Takbeer.
As a result of this incident, a heavy police force has been deployed in the area in an attempt to quell tensions.
As per DCP (central) Mandeep Singh Randhawa, a case has been registered in the matter and CCTV footage has been obtained to take action against the accused.
