The incident happened at Surajkund in Civil Lines Police Station limits.
It is reported in Hindi publication PalPal news that Amit Bharadwaj, National President of Hindu Swabhimaan Sansthan puts the saffron color on the grave (mazar) with a statue of Hanuman. A case has been filed in the Civil Lines Police Station.
The reports further that Amit has even warned the police that if colour of the Peer’s (saint) mazaar again painted green, they will take further action and break it.
