Mangaluru: In an apparent attempt to disturb communally harmony, unidentified miscreants have attacked a Masjid on the outskirts of the city.
Badriya Jumma Masjid located at Special Economic Zone Colony at Kodikere near Baikampady Industrial Area, came under attack for the second time in one year.
Two windows of the Masjid were damaged following stone-throwing in the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday.
A woman reportedly saw two motorcycle-borne men riding away after allegedly throwing two stones at the west side of the Masjid.
The two men could not be identified because they were wearing helmets.
The police said that this Masjid was at an isolated place, which was about 4 km away from the Baikampady Industrial Area. Efforts are on to trace the culprits, they said.
B. S. Husain, the president of the management committee of the Masjid, has filed a complaint at Panambur police station.
In the earlier incident in June 2013, glass-panes on windows had similarly been damaged. Mr. Husain pointed out that not taking action against culprits, who had attacked the same Masjid last year, has lead them to commit the second attack.
The police are investigating the case.
