Statue of Kali Maa vandalized by Mob in Tripura, ABVP worker attacked

On Friday (October 29) A Muslim mob attacked the Kali temple of Hindus at Kailashahar in Tripura's Unakoti district. The incident happened after rumours that a mob of Hindus in the state had set the mosque on fire. According to reports, a Muslim mob attacked the Kali temple at 4 pm. They broke the idol of the mother there and damaged the temple. 

Apart from this, another case also came to light where ABVP worker Shibaji Sengupta was attacked by the people of NSUI and Trinamool Chhatra Parishad. The ABVP worker suffered a lot in this incident but now the condition is stable. According to reports, several appeals were made to restore peace in the area, but after Friday prayers in around 1100 mosques in Tripura, members of the community were provoked and then the situation in the area worsened.

The administration has imposed Section 144 in the area to control the situation. Now gathering of 5 people at one place is prohibited. The ban will remain in force till October 31. Unakoti police said, “Section 144 has been imposed in Laxmipur and Kailashahar for disturbing the peace in two separate incidents. Yesterday, unidentified miscreants ransacked the Kali temple in Laxmipur, and the ABVP leader was attacked by activists of NSUI and Trinamool Chhatra Parishad in Kailashahar."
