Mysore/Mysuru: Burglars, who gained entry into Vittaladhama Temple at J.P. Nagar by cutting open the window using a gas cutter, have made away with silver articles kept in the temple.

On inspecting the temple, the priest saw that the collapsible gate of the sanctum sanctorum was also cut open by the thieves and the deity’s silver armour, arathi plates, teertha vessel, silver puja articles and the offering box (hundi) missing.

Based on the complaint from Temple Secretary Ashok Chitaguppi, Vidyaranyapuram Police, who have registered a case, are investigating.
