Hyderabad: Four Hindu youths, who were allegedly involved in temple desecration at Kurmaguda in Madannapet police station limits which triggered clashes between two communities recently, were arrested by the Special Investigation Team of the Central Crime Station on Friday.

According to the police, the four persons had thrown meat and sprinkled green water on the grill of Hanuman temple at Kurmaguda. The incident triggered communal riots in Saidabad and Madannapet police station limits and led to imposition of curfew.

The arrested youths are identified as GHMC sanitation superviser Nagaraj of Maddannapet, flower decorator Kiran Kumar, hotel waiter Ramesh alias Chinna and car driver Dayand Singh of Kurmaguda.


The key accused who are at large are moneylender Srinivas alias Salman Srinu and liquor trader Niranjan.

Police said Srinu and Niranjan hatched a conspiracy at a restaurant on April 7 when they asked Nagaraj, Kiran Kumar, Ramesh and Dayanand Singh to throw pieces of cow legs and sprinkle green-colour water on the wall of Sri Abhayanjaneya Swamy temple which divides two clusters of homes where two groups of people are residing.

“Nagaraj, Kiran, Ramesh and Dayanad gathered at a wine shop at Champapet and discussed the preparation , procurement of the materials to be used at the temple. After having consumed liquor, Nagaraju and Ramesh procured two pieces of cow legs and a paint bottle. They went to the temple and threw the cow legs on the temple wall and also sprinkled the coloured water at the place,’’ police said.


The communally sensitive Madannapet was rocked by communal clashes on April 08 following the temple desecration. Over a dozen people were injured in the violence spread to Saeedabad and surrounding areas forcing police to impose indefinite curfew.


Later, activists belonging to the Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee in a fact finding report blamed the state government and the police for the riots that spread in Hyderabad in second week of April. They also accused Hindutva brigade of provocation and instigating violence.


"Congress government responsible for the communal violence in Hyderabad city. RSS outfits communalizing the situation and polarizing population by developing communal sentiments", the activists observed in their report.


"Communal violence that spread in Hyderabad is not a sudden act of violence. In recent years, communal fever is rising in Andhra Pradesh.


"It is a part of continuation of greater conspiracy that has impact especially in the Telangana region because of regional movement for separate Telangana State which is captured by BJP to gain political power.


"They are working hard with the RSS outfits to communalize the situation and polarize population by developing communal sentiments. Due to this, communal hatred has increased in this region by which both the rural and urban peoples’ lives are in danger and have become the target of Hindutva fascists ideology", they noted.


Accusing VHP leader Pravin Togadia, who visited Hyderabad before and after the riots, of provocation and questioning the inaction of the state government, the activists noted, "After Togadia left Hyderabad, riots started in Hyderabad and curfew was imposed in several parts of city, section 144 was imposed in Hyderabad and Secunderabad areas. During this period also Togadia visited the city and the Congress government permitted to hold a camp of VHP and Hindu Vahini and arranged facilities to him where he addressed (rally) and once again instigated the cadre."


Meanwhile, a large group of BJP activists gathered at the busy Saidabad junction on Saturday morning to hold a dharna against the alleged harassment of Hindu youth by the police following the desecration of a temple in Madannapet on April 8.

The protesters led by BJP leaders Baddam Bal Reddy, Govind Rathi and corporator Sahadev Yadav alleged that the police wrongly implicated Hindus in the temple desecration case.
