Nearly two dozen activists of the Hindu right-wing organisation Bajrang Dal allegedly attacked and vandalised a church in a Mahrashtra town Sunday morning, police said. “Nearly two dozen activists, armed with sticks, barged into the Douglas Memorial Church here around 11 a.m. when the late Sunday morning prayer service was in progress,” investigating officer D.G. Gavi of Savner Police Station, told IANS shortly after the incident. As the scared churchgoers - nearly 100 attending the service - dispersed, the Bajrang Dal activists went on a rampage and destroyed several chairs and tables inside the church, Gavi said. The priest of the church, Fr. Ramred Paul M. Sakhardevkar (53), who recognised some of the attackers, later lodged a complaint.
