The iconic Hanuman Mandir in Darrang district’s Kharupetia area in Assam was reportedly looted by unidentified miscreants late Monday night.
As per reports, the miscreants broke several locks and managed to enter the temple premises and looted four idols beside other valuable objects worth lakhs.
They also looted cash by breaking the donation box.
Meanwhile, police have initiated an investigation into the matter. No arrests have been made so far.
