“Few youths on a motorcycle got here close to the temple. From their behaviour we suspected that they have been about to pelt stones. Realising that the act will additional improve the violence, we stopped them. Few senior residents from our space expressed concern saying attackers will return and goal the temple. We determined to guard the temple and shaped human chain. We have been there between 11.30pm and 1am,” Mohammed Khaleed, a personal firm worker and resident of Shampura primary highway stated.
