Jammu: A shivalinga at Nandkishwar temple here was allegedly desecrated following which police formed teams to arrest the perpetrators, officials said on Saturday.

The incident took place on Friday evening in Sumbal village of Ganderbal district.

The police have identified two suspects in connection with the case and efforts are underway to nab them, the officials said, adding that the shivalinga has been restored.

Meanwhile, the BJP has demanded a thorough probe into the matter.

"We want an immediate probe into this sacrilegious act and arrest of the culprits. We urge the governor to ensure complete protection to temples in Kashmir valley," said BJP MLC G L Raina.
