A Hindu temple was vandalised on Friday by some unidentified persons in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province.

Police said idols of deities were damaged and some of the broken parts were found in a nearby sewerage line.

The incident occurred in Thatta district’s Gharo town.

A case of blasphemy and terrorism has been registered.

“Investigation is going on but so far no arrests have been made,” said Fida Hussain Mastoi, the SSP of Thatta.

Local Hindu councillor Lal Meheshwri said he was present in the temple on Thursday night to prepare for the next day’s service.

Dr Khatto Mal, adviser to the Sindh chief minister on minority affairs, said the attackers would be arrested soon.
