Maldives Police Service, on Sunday, revealed that an investigation was underway over the vandalisation of public parks in Meedhoo, Addu Atoll.
According to Police, the damages to properties established by a civil society organisation, 'Nalafehi Meedhoo', were first discovered by officers during their routine patrol late Saturday.
Notable areas that were vandalized included a park near the historically significant area of Koagannu Cemetery, as well as the swimming track.
