The matter is being investigated and action will be taken against the miscreants at the earliest, the minister said here on Monday.

Meanwhile, Archbishop Rev Dr Bernard Moras has expressed dismay at the fresh attacks on churches and desecration of sacred images in some parts of the State.

“This is like a storm after a brief calm and a plethora of assurances that such incidents will not happen again. There has been no breakthrough in any of the investigations so far. Anti-social elements indulging in activities that create communal disharmony must be dealt with firmly. In a democratic country of religious freedom, it is such a paradox that there are persistent threats to practice religion,” Archbishop said.
