Theft in Udaipur’s Jagdish Temple
Theft in Jagdishh Temple-Ab yehi bacha tha lutne ko!!
Extremely shocking news has come to light. Jagdish Temple became a victim of theft on Saturday night. The exact amount of cash stolen is not yet known.
As per reports, thieves broke the lock of Ved Mandir at Vyas Peeth and took away lots of cash. The incident of theft is much under suspicion as the main gate of the temple and the gate near Sai Temple were both closed. The temple has a security guard and there is a police station hardly 50 metres away from the temple. The thieves took away a huge amount in currency notes but did not take away the coins from the chamber.
Police were informed early morning on Sunday by the temple’s pujari. Police officials and officers from Devasthan department reached the site. It is being speculated that the theft has been committed by someone who is well acquainted with the area and is closely associated with the temple. Investigations are on considering every possible angle.
Police says that a few thousand rupees were stolen from the temple whereas the pujari says that the amount stolen is close to 40 thousand. The pujari claims that there were also foreign currencies in the Ved Mandir which is usually donated by foreign tourists. Officers from the Devasthan department said that Ved Mandir does not fall under their department.
CCTV footage is being checked. But the point of concern is that only one out of 4 CCTV cameras was working. The manager did not even bother to report the faulty cameras. Even the security guards are on duty for 4 hours each. One of the guards left the premises without informing the authorities. Officers from the Devasthan department said that the temple does not fall under their department and they do not even open the donation box. Security arrangements will be taken care of immediately.
