NEW DELHI – The statue of former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru at Dhavari square was vandalised by Saffron wearing right-wing Hindu extremists.

In a viral video on social media, several attackers can be seen vandalizing the statue with sticks and rocks in Bhopal – a city in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

Among the violent mob, a man can be seen breaking the statue using a hammer. The members of right wing groups touted saffron flags and chanted slogans against the local administration.

Following the incident, at least six people were arrested for damaging the statue of Jawaharlal Nehru, the secular leader of the Hindu-majority nation.

Local cops told Indian publications that a case was lodged against unidentified attackers for damaging Nehru's statue and creating social disturbances.
