Daijiworld Media Network - Karkala (SP)


Karkala, Sep 28: Thieves burgled gold ornaments from Durga Annapoorneshwari temple at Hebri on the night of Monday September 27. The value of ornaments so lost has been estimated at six lac rupees.


229 grams of ornaments including four Karimani chains and armour of the idol were stolen by the thieves. The lock of the main door was found to have been broken. On September 15, the idol of the goddess had been decorated with ornaments. On account of upcoming Navaratri festivities beginning on October 1, the ornaments had not been removed after the special puja that day. The thieves perhaps knew this and timed their operation accordingly.


The temple is located far away from populous areas about six to seven km inside the forest area. The house of the priest is the only other structure standing in the vicinity of the temple. Police personnel from Hebri visited the spot and undertook investigation.
