WTF of the day

from today's TOI-page 13.
the report is on some drunk youth groping a foreign visitor at Gandhi ashram in Ahmedabad.
sacrilege really, undeniably, undoubtedly, but TOI's understanding comes out superbly in saying that...
Keeping in mind the sanctity of the place, no police complaint was lodged and the youth was set free after a thrashing because even the victim vanished after the incident. (emphasis mine)
Language experts may argue that the 'sanctity of the place' clause and the 'thrashing' part are different parts of the same sentence, but i think not.
