Students of ultra-left group of Jadhavpur University arrested for vandalising Syama Prasad Mookerjee’s statue

Six male and one female student have been arrested by Kolkata Police for trying to deface the statue of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee and legal action has been initiated.


The bust of Jana Sangha leader was damaged and blackened in South Kolkata earlier today. Members of an ultra-Left group ‘RADICAL’, have been arrested in this connection. As per reports, the accused used a hammer and a chisel to damage parts of the statue and then blackened it, while raising slogans against the razing of Lenin’s statue in Tripura.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed concern over such incidents of vandalism and the Home Ministry has assured that necessary steps will be taken to prevent such incidents.

Earlier, miscreants had hurled petrol bombs at the BJP office in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
