NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday expressed concern over the incidents in Haryana and West Bengal and asked for the immediate reports of facts and action taken regarding the incidents.

Expressing concern over the incidents, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said on Twitter, “PM is deeply concerned about the incidents in Hisar, Haryana and Nadia, West Bengal.”

While seeking report, PMO said, “PMO has asked for immediate report on facts & action taken regarding the incidents in Haryana & West Bengal.”

An under-construction church was vandalised at a village in Haryana's Hisar district on Sunday. Even the church’s cross has been brought down and placed an idol of lord Hanuman and also put a flag with ‘Shri Ram’ written at the site by the attackers.

However, a case has been registered against 14 villagers of Kaimri, but no arrests have been made so far.

In another incident, a 72-year-old nun of a convent school was allegedly gang-raped by dacoits at Ranaghat of Nadia district in West Bengal early on Saturday.

However, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has ordered CID probe into the rape incident. After two days of the incident, Mamata met the victim on Monday and Chief Minister’s convoy was blocked for nearly an hour by the angry crowds who demanded justice for the 71-year-old nun.

The protesters demanded CBI probe into the incident. The blockade took place at Mission gate on NH34 while she was returning from Ranaghat.
