Feb. 25, 2015

Mangalore:  A church was attacked here by some "anti-social elements", Karnataka Health and Family Welfare Minister U.T. Khader said Wednesday.
The minister, who visited the site in the morning, told IANS that he hoped the culprits will be nabbed soon.
"Some anti-social elements threw a stone and damaged the glass of a statue to create insecurity and panic in society," Khader told IANS.

The minister said the site was littered with cigarette butts and hinted that the group might have been small.
He said police is looking for the culprits and that other citizens have also joined the operation.
"It is between good society and bad society. All 90 percent of the good society will join against them," he said.
Khader said the church, located beside a graveyard in an isolated place, is 250 years old and was renovated 10 to 15 years ago.
