"We are aware of the matter and are trying to locate the suspects," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Aakash Kulhari told India Today.

The feudal forces in the state under the BJP rule are constantly attacking the statues of Baba Saheb Ambedkar. The BJP government is continuously humiliating the Father of the Indian Constitution. The Prime Minister, the President and even the UP Governor are silent on the issue."

The incidents of statue vandalism have been reported from Aligarh, Meerut and other parts of Uttar Pradesh.
