Satna: Six people were arrested in Satna district in Madhya Pradesh (MP) for vandalising the statue of former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on Wednesday.
The incident occurred in the evening near the district collectorate at Dhawari Chowk. A video of the incident went viral the same day, prompting local Congress leaders to file a police complaint.
According to the video, a group of angry masked and unmasked men, armed with clubs and saffron flags thrashed the former PM’s statue and tore down posters and hoardings around it.
