Mahatma Gandhi statue vandalized in Washington D.C, India lodges strong protest with the U.S

The Indian embassy at the United States has lodged a strong protest with the U.S law enforcement agency and has taken the matter with U.S department of state for an early investigation and action against the culprits under the applicable law with regard to Mahatma Gandhi statue vandalised in Washington D.C earlier. The statue of Mahatma Gandhi in Washington DC’s Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Plaza in front of the Indian embassy was defaced by Khalistani elements on Saturday, December 12 in protest against the farm laws passed by the Centre. "The Embassy strongly condemns this mischievous act by hooligans masquerading as protesters against the universally respected icon of peace and justice," officials said.
