Home minister V S Acharya has described Monday's vandalism in religious places in Mysore and Karwar as acts of thefts and not any concerted attack on churches. In an informal interaction with mediapersons on the sidelines of inauguration of the police commissionerate here on Tuesday, Acharya said these are acts of theft carried outside the church but on its premises and are not attacks on churches per se.
"The miscreants did damage property on church premises," he said adding that those involved in these incidents will not be spared. "Our government took stern action even when religious places were attacked by miscreants in the past," he said adding that the culprits in this case too would not be spared. The process of rounding up people and those involved in this incident - directly or otherwise is happening, Acharya added.
