A Buddhist monk and three Dalit leaders were charged with removing a
Hindu idol found at ASI site.

<<The claim of the monk and the Dalit leaders was that the idol had
been placed in a Buddhist site located at Sannati with the ulterior
motive of proving that the site also contained remnants of Hindu gods
and goddesses.>>
