Miscreants vandalise church in Nadia district of West Bengal, outrage among locals


A church was vandalised early Friday morning in Nadia district of West Bengal, sparking outrage among locals in the area.

Locals have told Jantakareporter.com that the miscreants broke into St Thomas Catholic Church at Taherpur church and attempted a theft. However, since nothing was found missing in the incident, police are investigating the motive of the vandalism.

“The miscreants broke into the church and vandalised its few parts. Their entry and motive is not yet clear as no church property has been lost in the incident. We will find out how many miscreants broke into the church in the course of investigation,” Ajoy Prasad, Deputy Superintendent of Nadia district said.

Jantakareporter.com has learnt from sources that tension had been running high in the Ranaghat area of Nadia after the rape of a nun in a Christian school in March this year. Although a robbery motive had led to that rape then, it had led to angst against Christians among certain sections of locals following massive investigations.
