BOMBAY, INDIA, November 21, 2001: Tension prevailed in the sprawling Borivli National Park on the outskirts of Bombay following the desecration of an illegal temple in the area, police said. The icons of Siva, Parvati, Hanuman, Ganesha and the resting place of a local saint, Khadeshwar baba, were desecrated. Police have taken possession of the icons to prevent a flare up. Investigations are underway to nab the culprits. The park authorities allege that the temple has been illegally constructed on forest land and have made several attempts to demolish it.
