Unidentified persons allegedly desecrated a statue of Dalit icon B R Ambedkar here on Friday, triggering protests by BSP activists, police said.
The matter came to notice after some locals informed the police about the incident at the Old Collectorate premises this afternoon, they said.
The incident led to protests by BSP activists who shouted slogans against the Samajwadi Party government after the news spread.
The situation was brought under control as the district administration got the statue repaired soon.
