North Guwahati, May 22, 2019
Shocked by three thefts in the temples in one night here in Lathia Bagisa of Amingaon, the locals have urged the police to intensify patrolling to curb such incidents.
Three theft incidents have been reported from Ganesh Mandir in Lathia Bagisa, Smashan Kali Temple and Kali Temple at Lathia Bagisa. Apart from vandalising the temples, the miscreants decamped with cash from the donation boxes.
“The thieves broke into the temples and made off with cash and valuables in the wee hours of May 22nd, 2019. The incident came to light in the morning hours. In one temple, the thieves had entered through a window and in another, they broke the locks,” said a local.
“The police should intensify night patrolling to nab such robbers. It seems a particular gang is involved in all the temple theft incidents. Such thefts have created panic among the residents,” added another local.
