Kanpur: Tension prevailed in Keshavpuram locality of the city after a video of Keshav Vatika, a park in the locality, showing tiles on walls of toilet in the park carrying pictures of ‘Radha Krishna’ and ‘rasleela’ went viral on social media on Thursday.
However, the tiles were later painted in white to hide the pictures by Awas Vikas officials after objections were raised on the video. The volunteers of Bajrang Dal raised a strong objection.
