The attack on temples which is rampant in Andhra Pradesh seems to have entered into bordering Tamil Nadu as well as a 250-year-old Amman Temple was targeted by a Christian man as he painted the temple premises with Jesus Cross.
The incident was reported from Lellapalli, a small village near Andhra-Tamil Nadu border in Tiruppur district a few days ago.
