Cuddalore: Tension prevailed at Kuyavanpettai village near Chidambaram in this district of Tamil Nadu following desecration of the statue of Dr B R Ambedkar, this morning.
Locals, who came out of their house at around 0500 hrs, found that the bust of Dr Ambedkar, mounted on a two ft high pedestal, was found desecrated and informed the Annamalainagar police, who acted swiftly and removed it.
As the news spread about 150 to 200 people, including local villagers and activists of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) resorted to a snap road roko agitation, demanding action against the culprits involved in the incident.
Tension prevailed in the area for nearly an hour.
Senior Police officials and Revenue officials held talks with the agitators, pacified them and promised that culprits would be nabbed soon.
After a garland of flowers was put on the Statue by the police officials, the crowd dispersed.
Traffic in the area was affected putting school goers and office goers to a lot of hardship.
