The miscreants also left an image that was downloaded from the internet of an Islamic prayer to give it a colour of terror, the police said. The fire services were not alerted as there was only minimal fire and negligible damage with no causalities at all and few staff present at the building helped in dousing the fire.The jurisdictional police were informed immediately and the cops rushed to the spot and took up the case seriously as it involved a visa application processing office and an image of an Islamic prayer left at the spot. The police have detained few suspects who were staff members of a different firm from the same building for questioning over the incident. “It is a visa processing agency and they process visa of different countries including Israel. The agency only collect applications and process them before they send it to the consulate,” a senior police officer said. “On Sunday night, unidentified men threw a kerosene bottle near the door of the agency and lit it on fire. They also left an image that was downloaded from the internet of an Islamic prayer at the spot before they fled the spot,” the senior police officer added. A similar incident had happened on August 2
