Tension has gripped Haryana's Palwal district after a statue of Baba Saheb Ambedkar was found damaged on Monday. The incident came to light when some people in Ambedkar Park noticed one of the hands and legs of the statue broken and found a bottle of wine near it.

Soon police also reached the spot and tried to pacify the crowd by assuring strict action against the culprits. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Park Committee chief Chhatrapal said that was not the first incident of damaging the Ambedkar' statue in Palwal.

'Many times such incidents have taken place. Such incidents have been carried out by mischievous and anti-social elements,' he said. A complaint has been filed against unknown persons in the matter.
