Desecrated statutes of Lord Buddha and Dr B.R. Ambedkar were found in a park in Lakhimpur Kheri district after which tension prevailed in the area.

According to Indrani Devi, the caretaker of the park where the statues were installed, the hooligans who damaged the statues also thrashed her when she tried to stop them.

The incident took place on Tuesday in the Hyderabad police circle.

Locals informed the police and administrative officials about the incident and demanded strict action against the accused.
