Tirupur: A newly-built church was demolished as it was constructed without permission in Ganapathipalayam Panchayat in the district on Monday.
However, the concerned minority people claimed that they had obtained permission from the local body. Further, they alleged the demolition was ordered mainly because of 'pressure' from a Hindu outfit.
District administration authorities said the permission given by the local panchayat is invalid and hence it was demolished. The plan to provide an alternative land is now under consideration.
More than 30 dalits decided to build the church, and they are said to have obtained permission from the Ganapathipalayam panchayat in August 2016, to build it on a poramboke land near three-road junction in Parai.
