Uttarakhand's Satpuli town Bajrang Dal group vandalised the shop belonging to family of the minor of alleged Facebook post

Satpuli,July10:With West Bengal’s Basirhat reeling under the violent barrage of clashes over a ‘derogatory’ Facebook post for about a week now, Uttarakhand’s Satpuli town is new to join the bandwagon.

Situated in Garhwal district, tension gripped the town over an ‘offensive Facebook post’ on the holy Kedarnath shrine.

Members of Hindu group Bajrang Dal vandalised the shop belonging to family of the minor credited with shaming the shrine on Sunday.

Chanting pro-Hindu slogans, the members of the Hindu right wing organisation set part of the shop ablaze.

Seeing the sensitivity, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) and District Magistrate (DM) rushed to the spot. According to reports, the minor posted a rather offensive picture of the Kedarnath shrine along with a message/post.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the Bajrang Dal activists are threatening to agitate until the boy is arrested.
