Poira temple broken into, cash stolen


Unidentified persons broke open the fund box of the Shri Siddhivinayak temple, Poira, on the night intervening Friday-Saturday and decamped with a cash of around 5000.
Bicholim PI Ninad Deulkar said that a complaint was lodged by the devasthan president Deelip Ghatwal after the matter came to light on Saturday morning, when he had gone to temple to conduct rituals. The police also said that the culprits also effected entry into the house of the temple priest, but did not succeed in committing theft. [TOI]
