Mumbai: Mumbai Police have registered an FIR against unknown persons following vandalism at Rajgruh, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar's house, an official said on Wednesday.

Two persons threw stones on glass windows and damaged CCTV cameras at Rajgruh in the Dadar area on Tuesday night, the official said. CCTV footage showed a person smashing flower pots in the compound before fleeing, the official said.

Matunga police have registered an FIR in the incident.

Located in Hindu Colony, Dadar, the two-storeyed heritage bungalow houses the Ambedkar Museum where Babasaheb's books, portrait, ashes and vessels are among the artefacts. The current residents of Rajgruh include Babasaheb's daughter-in-law, and his grandsons Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi leader Prakash Ambedkar, Anandrao and Bhimrao.

Prakash Ambedkar, who was in Akola when the attack took place, has appealed for calm and asked his followers to not gather outside the house.

The All India Professional Congress on Wednesday asked Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to look into the attack on Rajgruh.

Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has already assured that strict action will be taken against the culprits.
