Temple priest Kishan Chand told the police that a woman from the village informed him on Friday morning that the locks of the temple were broken. The complainant added that when they reached the temple, the main door and the donation box were broken. After this, the members of the temple committee and “kardar” (caretaker) were informed about the incident. Things were scattered in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. The thieves decamped with Rs 25,000 and silver and brass ornaments and total stolen articles were worth about Rs 2.25 lakh, including the cash.

The temple is located in the middle of the village. The gold ornaments of the goddess were kept at another secure place, called “bhandar”, and the burglars did not attempt to steal those.
