Two bailed after Leicester Mahatma Gandhi statue vandalised
Two men arrested on suspicion of vandalising a statue of Mahatma Gandhi have been released on bail.
"Never forget 84" and "We want justice #84" was daubed on the base of the statue in Leicester's Belgrave Road, also known as the Golden Mile.
The graffiti appeared to refer to the 1984 Golden Temple attack in India which led to riots across the country.
The men aged, 19 and 22, were arrested on Wednesday and released on bail by Leicestershire police on Thursday.
They were also arrested and bailed in connection with damage to other street furniture in the area.
