Mumbai: Unidentified persons vandalized ‘Rajgruh’, Dalit icon Dr. B R Ambedkar’s house in Mumbai, on Tuesday, July 7 evening, the police said.

Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh condemned the incident and assured that strict action will be taken against the culprits.

“The attack from some unidentified men on Dr. Ambedkar’s residence in Dadar ‘Rajgruh’ is condemnable,” he tweeted.

“The police are probing the matter and strict action will be taken against the guilty,” he added.

While two other ministers, Jayant Patil and Dhananjay Munde, also condemned the incident, Prakash Ambedkar, president of Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi, and Dr. Ambedkar’s grandson appealed for peace.

People should not gather outside ‘Rajgruh’, he said. Bhimrao Ambedkar, another grandson of the architect of the Indian Constitution, too appealed for peace, saying that it was a minor incident.
