Jaipur: The alleged desecration of an idol of Lord Hanuman in a temple sparked tension in Baran district of Rajasthan on Monday.

The incident, which took place last night, irked locals who blocked a road in Seeswali area demanding immediate arrest of those behind the act, police said.

However, the situation was brought under control and policemen were deployed in the area as a precautionary measure, they said.

"It was suspected to be an act of some miscreant but investigations so far suggest that it might be an accident as a bottle of oil was found near the idol," said a police officer.

"Situation in the area is peaceful now and efforts are being made to ascertain the exact cause behind the fire," he said.
