Miscreants splashed night soil on the name board of the Government Kannada Higher Primary School in Machche village on the outskirts of the city.

Residents informed the police after the incident came to light. A similar incident was reported in the village last week, when miscreants targeted the Government Marathi medium school.

Incidentally, both the Kannada and Marathi medium schools are on the same premises. While the SDMC members had ignored the first incident thinking it was just an act of mischief, they lodged a complaint with the Belgaum Rural Police after Wednesday's incident. Also, leaders from both Kannada and Marathi linguistic communities held a peace committee meeting and appealed to maintain peace.
