Protests erupted in parts of south Kashmir's Anantnag town over an alleged attempt by miscreants to set a Sufi shrine on fire.
Locals said unidentified people had tried to set the shrine of Sufi Hazrat Hardi Baba Reshi on fire at Dabrana village Thursday night. They said that when people entered the shrine on Friday morning they found that the shrine was partly gutted from inside.
The villagers demanded a probe. This is not the first time an attempt has been made to set a shrine on fire. In June, a shrine housing the relics of saint Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani mysteriously caught fire, leading to protests across Valley.
