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.
