HISAR: 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.

According to the sources, the land on which the church was being made was for residential purpose. 

Father Subhash Chand was out of station. When he returned on Saturday he found the church vandalised. It is not exactly known when the church was attacked.

Police are investigating whether the motive behind the attack was only robbery or was it a hate crime.

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

But the Sarpanch has alleged that the villagers booked were not involved in the attack.

Meanwhile the minority community are seething with the rising cases of attacks on churches in recent days. In fact, a petition has also been registered with National Commission for Minorities on attacks on churches.
