Burnt books, a packet of bindis, an earthen pot used for Hindu funerals and a tulsi pot were also found nearby, according to Father Malcolm Sequeira, vicar general of Poona diocese.
The police have registered a case charging unidentified people for defiling a place of worship with intent to insult the religion and also for mischief causing damage.
Police officer Tanaji Chikhale said preliminary investigations make them “suspect mischief to be the reason.” A police team is analyzing the contents of CCTV cameras installed in nearby establishments.
The police have also provided protection at the grotto.
He said the community will wait for police action before launching any protest. “But if there is no progress in the police investigations in two or three days, we will decide on taking out a protest march,” he said.
