Chandigarh, October 5
A day before Dussehra was to be celebrated, some miscreants set the effigy of 82-foot-tall Meghnad on fire in Sector 46 here on Tuesday night.
According to the Dussehra organisers, occupants of a Fortuner car, bearing a Haryana registration number, set off a rocket directed at the effigy. The rocket blew the effigy off at around 1 am.
“After spotting the guard, the miscreants fled from the spot. They returned nearly after an hour and attempted to set off another rocket near the site. The guard rushed to catch them but they sped away,” said the organisers.
They added that they have shared the car’s number in their complaint to the police.
