Dharamsala (Jan 10): Some miscreants allegedly set a panchayat ghar at Nerti village, falling under police station Shahpur, on fire this morning, destroying the official records and even the computer, police said here today.
Kangra SP Deljeet Thakur said one Dev Raj, a resident of Rait, informed the police on Sunday that some unknown persons set the building ablaze in the early morining.
He said that a case under Prevention of Damaged to Public Property Act had been registered. He said that forensic experts collected burnt material from the scene of the crime and investigation was in progress.
However, it could not be established by the police as yet whether it was a handywork of some miscreants aimed at destroying the official records with an ulterior motive or it had to do something with the recent panchayat polls.
