Tensions between the Indian and Sikh communities in Davis are building over a statue of Mahatma Gandhi.
The statue was a gift to the City of Davis from the Indian government in 2016. However, earlier in the week, the statue was toppled from its base. Officials are still investigating why the statue was vandalized. However, when it was first installed in the city's Central Park, some members of the Sikh community protested its presence saying Gandhi was a racist and molested his teenage grandniece.
