Mangaluru, Aug 4, 2016: Thieves who broke into the Uma Maheshwari Temple at Attavar in the city on August 3, Wednesday night have decamped with silver ornaments worth over Rs 2 lakhs.
The thieves had broken the main door locks to enter the temple and have stolen the Kavachas of the presiding deity Shiva apart from the silver ornaments on the idols of Lord Ganapathi, Krishna and Vishnumurthi.
The thieves were clever enough to destroy two CCTV cameras. They had also covered yet another CCTV camera with a cloth so that their act was not caught on camera.
Pandeshwar police have rushed to the temple along with dog squad and finger print experts.
