UNIDENTIFIED MISCREANTS took away a brass idol from the Digamber Jain Udasin Ashram temple this afternoon. The temple was open and devotees were coming and going when the theft occurred.

The temple management committee member Arvind Kumar Jain told the police that the theft must have occurred between 11.30 am and 12.30 pm. The theft was detected when a devotee came and noted that the idol was missing and alerted the temple priest.

The stolen idol was that of Sheetal Nath. It was around 7 inches in height and weighed around 5 kg. Tukoganj police have registered the case.

Murderous assault
Three persons who had gone for a drink at the ‘Ahata’ (drinking place next to a liquor shop) were attacked by the owners and staff of the Ahata when they entered into an altercation with them over payment.

According to information Yogesh, son of Mahendra, resident of Nanda Nagar, Manoj, son of Jagannath, and Buria, son of Navnath, both residents of Kamal Patel Ki Chawl, ran short of cash while paying bill at the ‘Ahata’. The amount was only around Rs 5, but a heated argument ensued and the owners attacked the trio with knives. All three had been hospitalised.
