The granite headstones of several graves at a Catholic cemetery in George Town were removed in what is believed to be the work of vandals, reports freemalaysiatoday.com.
The cemetery is managed by the Cemetery Committee of the Church of the immaculate Conception in Palau Tikus. It was brought to the notice of the church office by a 70-year-old retiree who went there to visit her parents’ graves.
A church employee has urged anyone encountering such vandalism to report the incident to the church.
