Rs. 50,000 and valuables looted
Hindus expect that the Central Government should make attempts to stop the attacks on Hindu Saints in the States ruled by Congress.
This goes to show that the Police who take action against common people disregarding the restrictions placed due to lockdown cannot, however, keep a check on the criminals.
