According to information, the priest came to know about the theft first when he came to the temples, Maa Bhagiasuni Temple and Shibaparbati Temple, for puja. He saw all doors were open, donation boxes broken and ornaments missing.
It was then marked gold chita, silver crown and money from donation boxes were missing. Later, temple committee members filed a complaint at the Simulia police station. However, police didn’t visit the temple hours after the complaint lodged with them.
